Has any member had a kidney transplant and now has PD?

I had a kidney transplant in 2014 and now have been diagnosed with PD. I have not exercised in a long while and m starting PT . For a long while the tx team thought my tremors where from the anti rejection meds I take, but after having a DATscan they confirmed I have PD. I am 74 yo female. My back and leg pain and weakness is really getting me down. Is there any one in our community that can offer some thoughts? Thank u, Mary

    Hi, @mbachura – Seems like we’re still waiting for someone else to weigh in! I thought you might be interested in reading this study, however: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S1353802019300598. Their conclusion was that patients undergoing tissue transplant may have a lower risk of developing PD than the general population. It appears that there’s more investigation needed before making any concrete conclusions. Take care! – Chris, ParkinsonsDisease.net Team
