Recently, a patient consulted our on-line consultant. She said she has a low grade fever and CKD stage 3. She asked if the fever comes from her kidney problem. Here, well, is there any relationship between CKD stage 3 and low grade fever?
CKD stage 3 is marked by GFR 30-59. Although it is not serious enough for patients to start dialysis, sufferers begin to experience various symptoms like high blood pressure, foamy urine, tiredness, swelling, blood urine, back pain and so on. Symptoms of CKD stage 3 differ from case to case, but generally, it does not directly cause low grade fever.
Although low grade fever is not a symptom of CKD stage 3, some patients may be bothered by this problem for some reasons. According to clinical studies, the most common causes are:
1. Viral infection
2. Autoimmune disorders
3. Kidney infection and UTI (Urinary Tract Infection)
With different causes and illness condition, different medical measures will be applied. Therefore, to get low grade fever controlled effectively, knowing the root cause of it is very essential.

Lastly, an effective treatment is urgently needed by CKD stage 3 patients. If they can seize this chance to treat injured kidney, there is great chance for them to reverse their kidney problem to stage 3. On the contrary, if they just leave their illness alone, they will be in stage 4 soon. At that time, they will run a higher risk for dialysis and kidney transplant in near future.
