GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate) is a blood test to indicate how well kidneys are working to filter blood wastes. This article is specially about the causes and treatment for fever and swelling when GFR is below 60.
In clinic, Chronic Kidney Disease is divided into five stages according to glomerular filtration rate level. When GFR level is below 60ml/min, it indicates that patients are at Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). The kidneys are moderately damaged, failing to remove blood wastes and toxins.
As a result, excess fluid retained in the body, leading to swelling (edema). What’s more, wastes accumulates and attack many organs and systems. Patients may have weak immune system and bacteria may invade the body easily. Fever may be due to infections such as upper respiratory infection and urinary tract infection.
