Post-Transplant diet

Tips

  • Trim the fat off meat.
  • Grill, bake or steam foods and avoid frying.
  • Choose unsaturated fat spreads such as olive oil spreads instead of butter.
  • Choose semi-skimmed milk or reduced fat dairy produce.

Sugar

Sugar provides energy, which if not used, will be converted into fat and stored in the body. If you are conscious of your weight, choose low calorie and sugar-free drinks and try to avoid sugary snacks. Go for high fibre options instead, for example fruit, teacake or toast.

Alcohol

As long as there are no contraindications with your medications alcohol is safe to drink. You should not regularly exceed the recommended daily limits: three to four units/day for men or two to three units/day for women. Excessive alcohol may reduce the effectiveness of some of your medications.
