  • Those Popular Acid Reflux Meds May Be Driving You Straight Into Kidney Failure

    CNN reports a new study says taking proton pump inhibitors might dramatically increase risk of kidney failure and kidney disease. Doctors prescribe PPIs to help people who suffer from regular heart burn, ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease or acid reflux. They are sold under the names Prevacid, Prilosec, Nexium, Protonix, Aciphex and others. About 15 million Americans have prescriptions for them, although people can get them without a prescription -- so the number who use them is likely much higher. The medications are popular because they relieve symptoms pretty quickly. It was also thought that they had a low toxicity. Looking at data from the Department of Veterans Affairs, the study's authors found just over 173,000 people who used PPIs and just over 20,000 took a PPI alternative known as histamine H2 receptor blockers. Five years later, data showed that patients who took PPIs had a 96% increased risk of developing kidney failure and a 28% increased risk of chronic kidney disease compared to the patients who took the histamine H2 receptor blockers.
