Why Do ESRD Patients Have Low Grade Fever

Why Do ESRD Patients Have Low Grade FeverIn end stage renal disease (ESRD), kidneys are unable to play their function normally, so many symptoms and discomforts occur easily. Low grade fever is just one common symptom of ESRD. Do you know why ESRD patients have low grade fever?

As introduced by Nephrologists, low grad fever is related to end stage renal disease in several aspects.

1. A large amount of protein leakage in urine

In addition to cleansing the blood, keeping nutrition including protein in the body is another important kidney function. When kidney filters, glomeruli, are damaged severely, a large amount of protein leaks into urine. One type of protein is called immunoglobulin that can protect the body from harmful substances, so immunoglobulin leakage leads to low immunity easily. In this case, ESRD patients are vulnerable to infections and low grade fever.

2. Deposits of waste products and toxins

When kidney disease progresses into end stage, remaining kidney function is less than 15%, resulting in buildup of waste products and toxins. These harmful substances can disturb patients’ internal environment and make patients catch cold or infections easily. Along with these problems, low grade fever occurs.

3. Renal anemia

When kidneys are unable to produce enough EPO, the body won’t make red blood cells easily. This leads to less blood and oxygen transported into various functioning cells all over the body. If left untreated, patients will be exposure to low immunity that can trigger low grade fever.

4. Side effects of some medications

To manage ESRD patients’ illness condition, a variety of medications such as steroids and immunosuppressants are used commonly. However, these medicines also produce a series of side effects, while low grade fever is just one side effect.

Now, we have known the causes of low grade fever for ESRD patients. The next step is to accept effective treatment to manage it timely. Otherwise, it may induce more severe problem. If you haven’t taken effective treatments, you can ask help from Doctor online through dialog box.
