The Effect of Pancreas Transplant on the Diabetic Complication

Takashi Kenmochi, Duck Jong Han

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


As with kidney donors, most pancreas donors stand by their decision to donate. In a retrospective study, pancreas donors were asked if they believed they had made the correct decision by donating: 43 of 46 said yes. A subgroup of 16 SPK donors were asked if they had experienced social, marital, financial, or employment problems associated with donating: 2 of 16 donors reported social problems (1 irritability, 1 depression); 2, marital problems (decreased libido); and 1, financial problems (difficulty paying for medication). Of the 16 SPK donors, 2 had health problems associated with donating: 1 reported weight loss and low energy level, and 1 had a gastric ulcer. None of the donors reported employment problems [1].
