Is It Normal For A Dialysis Patient To Have Fever

Q:

My mom is currently on dialysis and she keeps running a fever almost constantly. Is this normal?

 

A:

Is It Normal For A Dialysis Patient To Have FeverYes, it is normal for a dialysis patient to suffer from fever. There are various types of diseases accompanied by fever like infectious diseases, malignancies and allergies. Because dialysis patients are easy to have a weakened immune system due to aging or complications of diabetes, infectious disease may become severe and sometimes become fatal. Well then, what is the treatment for fever?

The treatment for fever in dialysis patients should be started after the cause of fever is determined.

If the fever is caused by an allergy to the materials used in dialysis devices, the materials of the dialysis devices and the sterilization method should be examined and be replaced with a device made of other materials or another method as necessary. If a dialysis membrane is considered to be the cause of fever, it should be replaced with a more biocompatible dialysis membrane. For contaminants in the dialysate, the dialysate should be purified and endotoxin retentive filter should be installed.

All in all, you take treatment after you know the cause of fever. Of course, if dialysis can be avoided, fever and other complications can all disappear naturally.

Is there any alternative to dialysis?

Yes. In our hospital-Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we create a therapy called Toxin-Removing Treatment which is a series of Chinese medicine treatments such as Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Steaming Therapy, Enema Therapy, Circle Therapy and Moxibustion Therapy, etc. These therapies can first cleanse your blood to set up a clean environment for recovering renal function. And then Chinese medicines improve renal function through dilating blood vessels, improving blood circulation, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and providing nutrients. When renal function is improved, it is possible to avoid dialysis. Without dialysis, fever and other side effects like itchy skin, nausea, vomiting, poor appetite and muscle cramps, etc can all be controlled from the root.
