Can Dialysis Cause Fever For FSGS Patients

Can Dialysis Cause Fever For FSGS PatientsTo the question can dialysis cause fever for FSGS patients, the answer should be yes.

As a common symptom even for a normal people who has only got a mild cold, fever can easily be overlooked until it is too late, let alone FSGS patients. As a matter of fact, it is reported to be life-threatening for patients during or after dialysis. So for FSGS patients undergoing dialysis meanwhile suffering from a little cold, they eager to know what they should do to avoid it effectively. Before explain this answer, firstly, we must know why does dialysis cause fever for FSGS patients.

The most common cause of fever in patients with FSGS and dialysis is infection which may come from various sources, like exposure to invasive devices, immunosuppression, the lack of physical barriers between patients in the outpatient hemodialysis environment, and frequent contact with healthcare workers during procedures and care. The worst aspect of these types pf infections is the fact that the bacterium is injected directly into a dialysis patient’s blood stream. Where bacterium goes, the infection follows. If the infection fails to control timely, fever may occur. Apart from fever, the patients may also experience difficult breath, skin itching, back pain etc. Seriously, it even can threaten the patients' life.

To avoid the above condition, the patients on dialysis should try to reduce the dialytic number or stop it as early as possible. In the process, some alternative treatments like hot compress therapy, cycle therapy, foot bath therapy, etc are highly recommended. All of these are commonly used in clinical treatment for FSGS and to help patients get rid of various severe complications effectively.

Besides, the doctor or nurse should observe closely to see if the patients have any abnormal reaction when they use dialysis for the first time. Best wishes!
