“…The contemporary literature reports that there is a gradual shift towards older age groups among renal transplant recipients as well donors in the developed world 13 but local data shows that most of the renal transplant recipients are from the age groups between 30-35 years so our findings are similar to what has been reported previously from the developing regions of the world. [14][15][16][17] Majority of the renal transplant recipients (82.1%) were male in this study while 59.0% live kidney donors were females. Data from the developed countries like USA and UK reports male gender to have predominance among cases undergoing renal transplant or hemodialysis.…”

“…Our results suggest that serum cystatin C level correlates well with serum creatinine which is similar to the observations made by Ayub et al ., Pöge et al ., and Dharnidharka et al . [ 16 17 18 ] In a recently published study that aimed to evaluate the efficacy of serum cystatin C as a marker of renal dysfunction among different CKD and postrenal transplant patients, the findings showed that serum cystatin C is negatively correlated with measured GFR in all groups. [ 19 ] In this study, we found that serum cystatin C is a better parameter than serum creatinine to diagnose renal dysfunction.…”
