Approximately 30%‐40% of liver transplant recipients have sustained diabetes beyond 6 months after transplant. The true prevalence of insulin resistance in patients after liver transplantation is unknown but presumed to be even greater. It is important to find biological markers that can predict the risk of PTDM; this could also provide new ideas for individualized therapies. Recent studies have identified single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with PTDM risk among Tac‐treated patients. It has been suggested that genotyping diabetes‐related polymorphisms could be a possible method of predicting a patient's risk for developing PTDM, and this information could be a valuable asset in the selection of appropriate immunosuppressive regimens.Posttransplantation diabetes mellitus is characterized by a combination of insulin resistance and insulin hyposecretion in liver transplant recipients. It has been reported that there is a particularly high prevalence of insulin resistance associated with viral
