Can Cellcept Cause Low Grade Fever in Nephrotic SyndromeCan cellcept cause low grade fever? Cellcept will be prescribed when Nephrotic Syndrome relapses frequently. It is a medicine that is often used to by people who had a kidney transplant, heart transplant or liver transplant as it can help prevent rejection of the new organ. For Nephrotic Syndrome patients, cellcept is always used to block inflammation which is part of the complex biological response of vascular tissues to harmful stimuli. This medicine help to control Nephrotic Syndrome effectively, but if used for a long time, various side effects will be caused. Well then, is low grade fever a side effect of cellcept?

Can cellcept cause low grade fever in Nephrotic Syndrome?

As for this question, I am afraid the answer is “Yes”. Cellcept, also can be called Mycophenolate Mofetil, is a medicine that works by lowering patients’ immune system. Long-term inhibition to our immune system makes patients susceptible to various infection and this can increase patients’ risk for fever. Besides, cellcept itself also can cause sudden high fever or low-grade fever.

Low grade fever is just one of the common side effects of cellcept. For Nephrotic Syndrome patients, if they take this medicine for a long time, they also run risk for abdominal pain, stomach cramps, bleeding gums, blurred vision, chest pain, confusion, dizziness, dry mouth, drowsiness, headache, irregular pulse, irritability and dry skin and so on.

Is cellcept a must for Nephrotic Syndrome patients?

Cellcept is commonly used among Nephrotic Syndrome, but it does not mean this medicine is a must. Aside from cellcept, there are alternative medicines.

In Nephrotic Syndrome, cellcept is used due to inflammation which can directly cause damage on surrounding kidney tissues. Cellcept is helpful, but it is not the only option. For Nephrotic Syndrome patients, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy also can be used to deal with their kidney problem.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a herbal treatment. It not only helps to restrain inflammation, but also shows effects in removing immune complexes in kidney. Inflammation occurs because immune complexes deposit in kidney, so when these substances are cleared away, inflammation is prevented effectively.
