Background. New-onset diabetes after transplantation is associated with an increase in risk of graft failure, cardiovascular disease, and mortality. Therefore, it compromises the overall beneficial outcome of organ transplantation. Case Report. A patient with new-onset diabetes after renal transplantation showed glucose and lipid metabolism improvements after switching immunosuppressant from everolimus to cyclosporin A. A subcutaneous adipose tissue biopsy displayed changes in gene and protein expression that could contribute to the clinical improvement of hyperglycemia and dyslipidemia.
