    I'm liver so it might be different depending on organ? I know every body is different, too, and there's so many factors involved in who needs what in terms of supplementation. immediately post transplant my team started me on a multi vitamin supplement and vitamin d. through closely monitored labs, we adjusted according to what my body needed. I was on calcium, iron and magnesium for a while, vitamin d tends to just be in the winters when i'm getting less from my environment. Currently I take beef liver supplements for copper and vitamins A and B, as well as vitamin d supplement. I also try to source as many vitamins and minerals from bio available sources as possible. Your team should be able to test your levels and offer personalized recommendations based on what your body needs.

    Liver and kidney, 5 years out. I take a slew of vitamin supplements. I am going to try a new supplement, Resveratrol. Google it. Lots of clinical studies on it. As always, check with your Dr. first. Also, because of the steroids I have a bit of osteoporosis. I tried Prolia injection, but it sent my LFTs soaring. Be very cautious of osteoporosis meds.
