Protein and calorie restriction may improve outcomes in living kidney donors and kidney transplant recipients

Figure 2. Systemic inflammatory markers in living kidney donors before and after kidney donation. (A) Levels of systemic inflammatory marker C-reactive protein before and after live kidney donation were not significantly different between the PCR and the control group. (B) Levels of leukocytes did not significantly differ between both groups either, and only reached high-normal levels on POD1 after surgery. Values are depicted as median ± interquartile range. PCR = protein and caloric dietary restriction; POD = postoperative day.
