Background. Hypertension (HT) is a common problem, observed frequently after kidney transplantation due to several causes. Posttransplantation HT increases the incidence of both cardiovascular diseases and allograft failure. Although a low sodium diet is strongly advised, the relationship between it and posttransplantation HT has not been well studied in transplant patients.
