How To Manage Low Grade Fever In Chronic Renal Failure

2015-11-03 07:50

How To Manage Low Grade Fever In Chronic Renal FailureLow grade fever is commonly seen in chronic kidney failure patients. Actually kidney failure will not cause low grade fever directly. But patients with kidney failure are easy to get infection, which makes them easily have low grade fever.

Infection can be caused by three factors:

1. Low immunity

As we all know, kidney disease can be caused by immune disorder or low immunity, which makes you easy be infectious. For patients with kidney failure, their immunity will be affected and be overaction, which makes them at higher risk of infections. Low grade fever can occur in this condition.

2. Massive proteinuria

Protein in urine or proteinuria is a common symptom in kidney failure and massive proteinuria will cause low immunity. Infection and low grade fever can also present.

3. Long term use of immunosuppressive agents

People with kidney failure are often prescribed some immunosuppressive agents to control the inflammation in kidneys. But long term use of immunosuppressive agents will impair the immune system, triggering infection.

How to manage low grade fever in chronic kidney failure?

1. Eat plenty of vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds

These foods will provide your body with the nutrients your immune system needs. Citrus fruits as well as bell peppers, papayas and broccoli, contain vitamin C, which helps the immune system protect against disease. And vitamin E in nuts, seeds and turnip greens has been shown to combat flu and upper respiratory infections.

2. Exercise to boost your immune system

Walk 4 times a week, or if you are in better shape, jog 4 times a week for at least 30 minutes. Sweating and keeping the body moving and functioning beyond the normal daily routine boosts your immune system.

3. Immunotherapy

Immunotherapy is a new kidney disease treatment in China that stimulates a patient’s immune system so it is better able to fight disease. This therapy combines western medicines and Chinese medicines together. In general, western medicines are effective in controlling symptoms compared with Chinese medicines. They work fast so they are good options for kidney failure patients to deal with symptoms like high blood pressure, proteinuria and some other discomforts. As for Chinese medicines, it works by adjusting immune system, increasing immunity, promoting blood circulation and enhancing our self-healing ability. Thus, a strong immune system is the key point for us to live healthily. By the combination of western medicines and Chinese medicines, infection can be treated from the root. Low grade fever will be managed effectively.
