Can Having A Cold Cause Further Damage to Patients with Stage 3 CKD

2015-02-16 03:48

Can Having A Cold Cause Further Damage to Patients with Stage 3 CKDIt seems that kidney patients have a high risk of catching a cold. Can having a cold cause further damage to patients with stage 3 CKD?

Why CKD patients have a cold frequently?

Compared with healthy people, CKD patients’ inherent immunity is poor. The use of medications such as steroids and immunosuppressants can further weaken your immune system, making it easy for bacteria and virus invading into your body, leading to infections and cold.

Having a cold may cause further damage to your kidneys.

From the above, we can see that cold is caused by virus and bacteria invading into your body. In order to cleanse them from the body, your body produces massive antibodies, which can combine with those virus and bacteria to form immune complexes. With blood circulation, those immune complexes come into the kidneys. Because your kidneys are not able to filter waste products from the blood, those immune complexes may deposit in the kidneys, leading to kidney inflammation and further damage.

How to deal with a cold for stage 3 CKD patients?

-When you have a cold, you should talk with your doctor, who can prescribe some medications for you. Do not take antibiotics without the instruction of doctor, because some antibiotics have renal toxicity.

-The best way to avoid getting a cold or the flu is to boost your body’s immune system. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Mai Kang Mixture and decoction can regulate the qi flowing through the channels, remove stasis and cleanse waste products so as to make your whole body harmonious and balanced. They do not only protect your kidneys from being damaged, but also reduce your chance of cold.

Can having a cold cause further damage to patients with stage 3 CKD? Maybe it can. Therefore, you should take cold lightly if you have stage 3 CKD. For more information, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
