Heartburn medications have been making the news and have recently been linked to certain kidney complications. Already linked to a risk of fractures and infections, this new study finds there may be more complications to be aware of if you are taking these drugs. How can this happen?
Drugs like Nexium®, Prilosec® and Prevacid® - proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) - all treat heartburn, acid reflux and indigestion by reducing the amount of acid produced by the stomach.
It is believed by many scientists that PPI's lower magnesium levels which can damage the kidneys. Another finding is that kidney function is damaged due to repeated occurrences of acute kidney inflammation, linked to proton pump inhibitors.
So what can you do?
