Hello. I’m from New Zealand. I’d like to know is there a treatment plan for patients with primary hyperoxularia type 2 post transplant?

Yes.  There is standard treatment for patients with Primary Hyperoxaluria Type 2 prior to end stage kidney disease and for patients with kidney failure related to the hyperoxaluria.  You should be managed by someone who is familiar with the disease and it’s treatment.  The most important treatment after transplant is to drink large amounts of water to flush the oxalate out of the kidney, but other medical treatments are also recommended. I recommend that you discuss this with your nephrologist and the transplant team who are working with you.
