The patients in these reports had risk factors such as systemiclupus erythematosus, advanced age, chronic renal conditions, or a recent binge of alcoholconsumption. These cases involved a single dose in some instances and never more than 10days of analgesic use. Acute kidney failure requires emergency dialysis to clean the blood. Butnormal kidney function often returns after the emergency is over.A different kind of problem can result from taking painkillers every day for several years.Analgesic nephropathy is a chronic kidney disease that gradually leads to end-stage renaldisease and the permanent need for dialysis or a kidney transplant to restore renal function.The painkillers that combine two or more analgesics (for example, aspirin and acetaminophentogether) with caffeine or codeine are most likely to damage the kidneys. These mixtures areoften sold as powders. Single analgesics (e.g., aspirin alone) have not been found to causekidney damage.Patients with conditions that put them at risk for acute kidney failure should check with theirdoctors before taking any medicine. People who take painkillers on a regular basis should checkwith their doctors to make sure they are not hurting their kidneys. The doctor may be able torecommend a safer alternative. (Source: excerpt from Analgesic Nephropathy (Painkillers and theKidneys): NIDDK)TopTopAbout medication causes:Another misdiagnosis possibility is that a particular medication or substance may be the realcause of the disease. Certain medications, chemicals, toxins or substances may possibly beunderlying causes of Kidney failure. Side effects of medications, or exposure to toxins, chemicals,or other substances may cause a symptom or condition. Hence, they become possible underlyingcauses of Kidney failure but are often misdiagnosed or overlooked as a cause. For a generaloverview of this misdiagnosis issue, see Medication Underlying Cause Misdiagnosis.
