2014-06-25 00:48

High Fever in ESRD: Cause and TreatmentEnd Stage Renal Disease, or kidney failure is the most serious stage of renal disease. At this stage, more than 85% of the glomeruli have been damaged and kidneys cannot function well. As a result, many complications are caused and high fever is one of the complications. This article is about the causes and treatments of high fever in End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD).


1. Low immunity

Since patients who at the end stage of kidney disease are experiencing severe damage to their kidneys, they always have low immunity. Due to the declined GFR (glomerular filtration rate), many wastes and toxins accumulate in the body, affecting many systems and organs. The body’s immune system is also damaged and cannot prevent bacteria or viruses from invading the body adequately. The regulating center of temperature works abnormally due to low immunity so that high fever occurs.

2. Infection

As kidneys cannot discharge the excessive wastes and toxins, those useless substance will deposit inside the body and flow into other parts with blood circulation. If some parts of the body are affected by those substances for a long time, infections may be caused. Bacteria or virus also contribute to the occurrence of high fever.


1. Rest: Take a good rest and avoid strong activities; Meanwhile, keep a low-salt diet in case of swelling and high blood pressure.

2. Control inflammation and infection, but try to not use medicines that are toxic to kidneys.

3. Hospitalization is needed if the high fever is persistent for a long time.

4. Anti-coagulation are used to prevent blood platelet gathering
