Proton pump inhibitor lawsuitsHeartburn Medication and Kidney Disease or Failure

Recently certain types of heartburn medications, called Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) have been liked to people developing kidney disease or failure. Any sort of kidney disease can be devastating on the body. The body relies on the kidneys to not only remove wastes and toxins in the blood, but they help maintain blood pressure and blood acid-base balance, as well making sure certain nutrients are absorbed in the body. Some of the PPIs linked to kidney disease are:

  • AcipHex
  • Dexilant
  • Nexium
  • Prevacide
  • Prilosec
  • Protonix
  • Zegerid

The recent research has indicated that the following problems have been seen in people taking PPIs:

  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Acute kidney injury, or acute renal failure
  • Interstitial nephritis
  • End-stage renal failure, or end-stage renal disease
