Native kidneys and thick blood
imsoblue posted:
I had a transplant in Dec. 2009. I was recently contacted by the transplant clinic and they said I needed to have an ultrasound of my native kidneys because my blood was getting thicker. Anyone know why they would want this ultrasound? Any info will be appreciated.

Sorry, I'm not sure I can give you any info. Not even saying that your blood is "thick" doesn't make any real sense. Have you asked what that means?

You should ask your transplant center/coordinator why they want the test and what they suspect the problem is. Best of luck.
