DEtox CONCERNS WITH ORGAN TRANSPLANTS
As another example, patients who have had organ transplants must be very careful about changing their immune status through diet, exercise, or nutritional supplements. Augmenting their immunity too dramatically can cause a rejection of the transplanted organ, resulting in hospitalization and even death. Any lifestyle changes in people with organ transplants must be carefully monitored and coordinated with their doctor(s) to ensure that the level of immunosuppressive medications being taken throughout the transition period are adequate to suppress any rejection of the transplanted organ(s). Similar precautions must be taken by patients taking medications for extremely high blood pressure, diabetes, and other life-threatening illnesses.
