Why Do I Have Shiver When I am on DialysisAs we all know, dialysis is featured as an artificial kidney, which helps kidneys clean the blood. However, people who are on dialysis are easy to be attacked by some discomforts, such as nausea, vomiting, headache, muscle cramps and so on. Some patients may also experience shiver. Recently, a patients asked me”why do I have shiver when I am on dialysis”. Now, let’s talk about this question.

The cause of shiver on dialysis.

Dialysis is a life-saving method under some emergent circumstances. But patients on dialysis will suffer a lot. Sometimes, it is also deadly, and this is not caused by dialysis itself, but it’s complications. Cardiovascular disease and infection are the two life-threatening complications of dialysis, while infection is the main cause of shiver.

Patients who are on dialysis are vulnerable to infection. What is the reason?

The causes of infection.

Firstly, patients on dialysis often have a low immunity due to the accumulation of the toxins. Low immunity provides a favorable condition to the invasion of the outer pathogen.

Secondly, malnutrition easily occur in patients when one has dialysis. Some of the nutritions, for example the protein, will be discharged with dialysis, so patients are prone to be attacked by malnutrition, which can also lower the body resistance.

Thirdly, vascular access site on dialysis increases the risk of bloodstream infection. This access site can be an entry of the bacteria, which will easily cause infection.

The infection can not only cause shiver, but also fever. So the root method to prevent shiver is to prevent infection. So you are suggested to supply more nutritions during dialysis, do moderate exercise to enhance the immunity and keep the access site clean. If you have any sign of infection, talk to your doctor immediately. You are also welcomed to chat with the online doctors, they will offer you some suggestions to keep healthy.
