Proton Pump Inhibitors
Many Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) are overprescribed for acid-related conditions. The FDA has indicated that PPIs are only intended for a 14 day course of treatment, but many times they are taken by consumers for much longer periods of time, which studies have found increases the risk of a kidney related disease.
Our Approach to Proton Pump Inhibitors Claims
PPIs are over-the-counter and prescription heartburn medications which include Nexium, Prilosec, and Prevacid. These common heartburn drugs have been found to increase the risk of several kidney issues which include:
- Acute kidney injury
- Bone fractures
- Chronic kidney disease
- End-stage renal disease
Kidney disease is often detected using a urine albumin and serum creatinine test. A person who is suffering from kidney disease may find themselves sickened by a buildup of wastes in their blood. Additional complications from kidney disease include high blood pressure, anemia and heart disease. Early detection of kidney disease is important in preventing more serious side effects. Symptoms worsen over time and individuals may eventually face complete kidney failure, requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant to survive.
