Polycystic Kidney Disease: Fever After Dialysis

My brother has Polycystic Kidney Disease and he has been on dialysis for 3 months. One thing I want to know that he felt fever after dialysis. Can you tell me why?

The Doctor Answered:

Fever is a common side effect of dialysis. Patients with PKD, especially for patients on dialysis have very weak immunity, which increases the risk of infection or fever after dialysis.

For patients on dialysis, the insertion side is exposed to the air, as a result, the bacteria and virus are very likely to invade into body. This is why patients may have immunity disorder, such as fever or infections after dialysis.

In addition, cooling dialyzate and first-use syndrome can also be responsible for fever after dialysis.

If dialyzate is cold, which may make the patients feel discomforts and cause fever. Also, first-use syndrome is a common cause for fever after dialysis. However, it should not be a cause for your brother. In first-use syndrome, patients feel not only fever, but also back pain, difficult breath and skin itching etc.

Good news is that certain herbs can help alleviate the fever after dialysis naturally. If you have a interest, you can email us:pkdclinic888@hotmail.comfor a free reply.
