Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2013-05-17 14:36

Hiccup And High Fever with GlomerulonephritisGlomerulonephritis is characterized with inflammation of filters,called glomeruli in kidneys.Proteinuria is a typical sign of the disease.If the patients experience hiccup and high fever,they may indicate serious kidney deterioration or other problems.

Hiccup in glomerulonephritis

Hiccups in glomerulonephritis may be associated with the following causes:

-Increased BUN level.Urea nitrogen is the product waste of proteins and is usually eliminated by kidneys in right condition.However,if the scarred kidneys in glomerulonephritis do not work normally,high levels of urea will build up in blood,resulting in high levels of BUN.

-Medications:A variety of medications are required in glomerulonephritis. Steroids may be a triggering factor of hiccup.Apart from this side effect, steroids also can lead to many other side effects.How to reduce the side effects of steroids? You may consult us to get the answer.

-Electrolyte imbalance:Healthy kidneys can balance the levels of different electrolytes in blood.Electrolyte imbalance can be an attributable factor of hiccup.

However,not all cases of hiccup are related to glomerulonephritis.It may be caused by other conditions,such as eating too fast,infection,stroke etc.

High fever in glomerulonephritis

High fever in glomerulonephritis is most likely associated with infections. Infections are the major attributable causes of glomerulonephritis. A strep throat infection or,rarely,a skin infection is common cause of glomerulonephritis and glomerulonephritis may develop a week or two after recovery of the infections.

Additionally,as the patients with glomerulonephritis use immunosuppressive agents over time,these drugs not only can suppress the abnormal immune system activity, but also can affect the normal immunity.So the patients are very likely to develop infections like flu, colds. Uncontrolled infection may cause high fever.

The above are the possible causes of hiccup and high fever in glomerulonephritis. As they may associated with other serious conditions, you should never neglect them.You need to check with your doctor and find the causes to manage them effectively.
