Chandigarh, April 13
The PGI here performed the first simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplant on a patient with type 2 diabetes.
A 54-year-old patient from Roorkee became the first person to receive the treatment at the PGI.
The patient was having diabetes for the last 10 to 15 years and was put on dialysis because of the kidney failure.
Last month, a family from Kaithal, who lost their 12-year-old child in a road accident, approached the transplant coordinator to donate all his organs, including pancreas.
Dr Ashish Sharma, an expert in nephrology, renal transplantation treatments at the PGI, said, “After the transplant, the patient is now able to eat whatever he wants and his blood sugar is well in control without the need of any insulin therapy.”
At PGI, Chandigarh, 25 simultaneous kidney-pancreas transplants have been performed on patients with type 1 diabetes but no such transplant had been performed on patients with type 2 diabetes. — TNS
