Fever and Hemodialysis: Causes and TreatmentsIn the end stage of renal disease, hemodialysis is commonly used to remove toxins and wastes out of body. Though it can alleviate some discomfortable feelings, it will have many side effects and fever is one of them.

What causes fever for hemodialysis patients

The most common causes of fever in patients with renal failure and dialysis are infections at the the dialysis access site. Through the access site, blood is transported in and out of your body. Because the patients’ immunity has weakened, bacteria and virus are very likely to invade into body, resulting in infection at the site.

The second cause of fever may be cold dialysate or malfunctioning thermostat. Thermostat keeps the dialysate’s temperature to a certain degree, if it malfunctions, the dialysate may be too cold to cause discomfort, such as fever.

When you are the first time to do dialysis, fever may attack you, because of unaccustomed to the dialysate, but there will be other symptoms, such as back pain, skin itching, etc.

Treatment for fever caused by hemodialysis

When you have a fever, it is necessary to find out the root cause and take corresponding measures. If it is caused by infection, you should pay attention to the access site and maintain a sterile environment next time. If it is caused by cold dialysate, you should regulate the temperature. If it is just first-time syndrome, you should communicate with the doctors and adjust the dialysate. Generally speaking, there is no need to take medicine, but when the fever persists for a long time, you should take appropriate hormone or antifebrile under your doctor’s instruction.
