Circle of Life

“In the circle of life
It’s the wheel of fortune
It’s the leap of faith
It’s the band of hope
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle, the circle of life

~ Elton John; Circle of Life

Tumeric and Piperin for inflammation

Hi FriendsI'm closing in on 9 years post heart and liver transplant. I never had any issues with the grafts. I started out with prograf and celcept for immune suppression and continue currently the same. Over the past two years I've developed poly neuropathy and have lost a lot of strength from the waist down. I feel I'm dealing with inflammation. Is there anyone out there who has had this experience? Also has anyone ever use Tumeric and Piperin to reduce the inflammation ? Thank you

Diseases associated with renal failure should be classified as renal transplantation contraindications.

(1) when kidney disease is caused by systemic disorder of local performance, can't consider a kidney transplant, because the disease will spread to the transplanted kidney. Such as amyloidosis, nodular arterial inflammation and diffuse around vasculitis, etc.
