Caroline - I read it as - they offer this after transplant donation so that they can learn to balance their weight with nutrition and exercise - because they fear (no data collected as of yet) that being obese will strain the one kidney they have left.

The wellness center said they need to take a course in nutrition 6 weeks before transplant, is this what i read. How could they expect any one to lose enough weight in 6 weeks, and it woukd not be healthy. I think it would endanger a persons health if they were overweight and donated a organ, this is my thoughts on this any way.
