Why Patients with Kidney Failure Feel Cold

2014-01-11 03:02

Why Patients with Kidney Failure Feel ColdPatients with kidney failure often feel cold. Why? Read on, in the following, you will find the answer.

Restricted diet

All the kidney failure patients have a restricted diet. Sometimes they have poor appetite, nausea and vomiting. These may decrease the intake of calory. Without enough energy in the body, you will feel cold.


Anemia is not uncommon among kidney failure patients. It is caused by kidney function impairment. As we all know, kidneys in our body are responsible for many things, such as filtering wastes and toxins, balancing electrolyte and acid-base. Another function of kidney is that it excretes hormones, such as renin and erythropoietin. Erythropoietin is related with the generation of red blood cells. If there is not enough erythropoietin, the amount of red blood cells will decrease. And the accumulated wastes and toxins in the blood will shorten the life span of red blood cells. As a result, anemia occurs. Due to fewer red blood cells, your body may not produce as much heat.

Improper dialysis

Dialysis is needed if your kidney fails. Cold dialysate or malfunctioning thermostat may make you feel cold. In addition, infections at the the dialysis access site will also make you have fever and feel cold.

Side effects of medicine

Immunosuppressors are the common drugs to treat kidney failure. Though they can control the symptoms, they lower your immunity after long-term use. Poor immune system can not protect you from various disease. Fever and infection may make you feel cold.

Keep yourself warm when you feel cold and find the fundamental causes of your cold feeling. Though cold feeling can not influence your life, you should pay attention to it as well, because the underlying causes may further damage your kidneys. If you need our help, please contact us.
