Diagnosed with chronic kidney disease after taking Prilosec? Call to discover your options!

According to recent reports, Prilosec, a heartburn medication considered a proton pump inhibitor (PPI), has been linked to chronic kidney disease. The study shows that individuals who take Prilosec are at a 20-50% increased risk of sustaining long-term damage to their kidney as opposed to nonusers of PPIs.

Background notes on the study determined that in 2013, over 15 million individuals in America used a PPI such as Prilosec. As many as 70% of the prescriptions were allegedly handed out inappropriately. The heartburn medication had already been linked to short-term kidney problems, but now, new research shows a potential loss of the kidney’s blood filtering ability, which could lead to kidney failure.
