Do the vital functions of the body such as digestion get affected during fever? Explain your answer.

Dear student,

Fever is caused by a breakdown in the body's temperature control actions, during fever the body temperature increases. Our body enzymes acts as highly specific catalysts which works best in a optimum temperature. But in fever the efficiency of enzymes decreases. This affects the vital functions of body including digestion.
