Cold/Flu and Kidney Failure

Kidney failure patients are more likely to get cold than others who have no kidney damages.

Cold/ flu and Kidney Failure

The cold is much more serious problem for people with kidney failure. It may cause a rapid kidney function decline and worsen the symptoms, as well as complications. For them, either type of flu can increase the risk of more serious illnesses such as bronchitis and pneumonia or can make their existing condition worse. In the worst cases, a bad dose of flu can result in a hospital stay or even death.

People with Kidney Failure are at an increased risk of cold as the kidneys help prevent cold-virus circulating in the blood. Due to your kidney failure, your immune system could be weakened, even if you feel well. This will make it much harder to fight off cold.

How to prevent cold for kidney failure patients?

- Cold viruses can survive for several hours on hands or hard surfaces and it only takes brief contact with an infected person or object for transmission of the virus to take place. The virus enters the body when you touch your eyes or rub your nose. Washing your hands frequently is the best way to protect yourself from catching a cold.

- It’s also possible that your kidney failure could become worse. These are good reasons to think about having the vaccination. If you have kidney failure, you are entitled to a free “flu vaccination”.

- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. You can get infected by touching something that is contaminated with germs and then touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.

- Follow good health habits: get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.

- Immunotherapy can help rebuild the underlying poor immune system and use the new immune system to fight against the cold or infections. It is a way to prevent the relapse of Kidney Failure.
