Can Flu or Cold Worsen Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)Chronic Kidney Disease is a disorder which refers that kidney loses its function over a period of months or years. It is reported that people who are diagnosed with CKD are at high risk of getting flu due to low immunity. Well then, can flu worsen the illness condition for kidney disease patients?

Is it serious to get flu when diagnosed with Kidney Disease?

To be frank, the clod is much more serious problem for people with kidney disease. As we all know, the healthy kidney is responsible to produce urination so as to discharge extra wastes and toxins from the body. And the kidney also help prevent the cold-virus circulating in blood. However, when diagnosed with CKD, it means that your kidney fails to work adequately. Consequently, these harmful and useless substances will build up in the body. What’s more, these products will further damage the immune system. Once the immune system is damaged, you will become more week. This will make it much harder to fight off cold. The flu may cause a rapid kidney function decline and worsen the symptoms, as well as complications. In the worst cases, a bad dose of flu can result in a hospital stay or even death.

Then, how to fight against flu with chronic kidney disease?

Flu shots can be considered if your doctor promise that.

Do regularly exercises so as to strengthen immune system.

Proper dietary can be helpful for preventing the disease.

Simply the mentioned above is far from enough to strengthen immune system from the underling causes. To reach the goal, Immunotherapy is recommended to you.
