These immune complexes will deposit on kidneys, and then cause kidney damage. So the acute damage to kidney increases serum blood urea nitrogen level.
On the other hand, excessive urea nitrogen accumulates in the body, damaging the kidneys, which makes severer immune disorder. When patients’ immunity becomes low, bacteria and viruses will easily invading the body and cause infections. Then people are easy to have a fever, keeping high temperature of the whole body.
