Low grade fever is a commonly seen in kidney failure. However, Low GFR is not a direct factor to lead to low grade fever, but kidney failure patients catch infection easily which makes them are prone to suffer from fever.
GFR is short for glomerular filtration rate, and it is an important and reliable indicator to reflect renal function. According to GFR, kidney disease is divided into five stages and the lower GFR is, the more serious the kidney damage will be. Low GFR is mainly caused by acute or chronic kidney problems. And it indicates that there is gradual decline on kidney function. Why does a person get low grade fever from Low GFR? There are several reasons that low GFR people have infection which can make them have low grade fever. For instance:
1. Low immune system
As we all know, immune disorders and low immune system can lead to kidney disease. And generally, kidney disease patients often have low immunity which fail to fight against the bacteria and virus. Once the bacteria and virus enter into the body, they will induce various infections which can lead to low grade fever.
2. Immunosuppressant drugs
In order to well control of infections, most patients are prescribed many immunosuppressant drugs. To some extent, these drugs can prevent the bacteria and virus invading the body. But what I want to emphasize is that long-term using of these medicines can cause some side effects. These medicine can impair patients’ immunity and make them susceptible to infections. In this case, patients will have low grade fever.
The mentioned above is the main causes that low GFR patients have low grade fever. It is mainly due to low immune system. Therefore, to treat it from the root, what you should do is to improve GFR and strengthen the immunity. Here we will recommend Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy to you.
