Kidney disease, by the pain: Even Younger are affected

High doses of some painkillers, called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) such as ACE or Ibuprofen, also increase with the occasional taking the risk for acute and chronic kidney disease. This is also true for young people, as a new study with data of more than 750,000 American soldiers.

NSAIDs such as Ibuprofen, Asa and Naproxen may have an effect with regular use a negative impact on renal function. You restrict the blood flow to the kidney and cause damage to tissue cells. Also young people taking occasional or regular pain relievers, are also affected, as researchers at the Stanford University in Canada, reports in the journal JAMA Network Open.

The average 27-year-old study participants, the high NSAIDs doses of revenue, showed a significantly higher risk for acute or chronic kidney disease. The relative risk increased by 20 percent in comparison to the people that no pain means of revenue. The researchers examined data from 764.228 active US soldiers (85.8 per cent of men). 65.8 percent had received no pain medication prescribed; 17.9 percent took up to seven daily doses per month and 16.3 percent took more than seven days of doses per month. 2.356 persons suffered in the observation period of three years, a acute kidney disease. This corresponds to 0.3 percent. 1.634 soldiers received the diagnosis of chronic kidney disease (0.2 percent).

The authors recommend Doctors, therefore, also in the case of young people with pain and inflammation the lowest possible NSAID to prescribe dose.
