After renal transplantation disturbances persist in bone mineral metabolism. The overall objective of this thesis is to explore the variables related to the loss of bone mineral density after kidney transplantation. It was carried out as a repeated measures design. The main results suggest that: kidney transplant recipients show higher prevalence of osteoporosis and osteopenia, especially older women, at 6 and 12 months after transplantation. They also have a higher prevalence of overweight and obesity, and those with lumbar osteoporosis are those with greater weight and body mass index. Glomerular filtration rate at 15 days after transplantation is an important predictor of risk of low bone mineral density in the hip factor. Patients above 55 years of age are showing worse renal function one year after transplant.
