Good morning, Ms. Debby Rahmah, Thank you for consulting HealthReplies.com.
Kidney failure is a disorder of kidney function that has the main function to filter toxins in the body and maintain a balance of fluid and salt levels in the body. In the condition of kidney failure decreased kidney function so that the risk of infection is higher fever is one sign of infection, if fever persists or high fever should consult your father to the doctor so it can be ascertained whether further treatment is needed.
For mild and non-prolonged fever, a fever-reducing drug can be used, one that is safe and easy to find is paracetamol. Paracetamol should be taken at a dose of 500 mg with a lag time every 4 to 6 hours. Do not use with a gap of less than 4 hours. Be careful of the use of paracetamol if there is a decrease in liver function because use with a dose that is too high or prolonged will cause liver damage.
Patients with kidney failure if they are found to have a high fever condition, poor speech, difficulty communicating, shortness of breath, palpable coldness on the hands or feet should be immediately checked by the hospital emergency room because it is a sign of emergency related to the level of toxins and fluids in the body
That's the thing we can say. May be useful. Thank you
