Antibiotics are often necessary to treat bacterial infections but can cause many side effects, including kidney damage. You can find more information about the causes, symptoms and treatment for kidney damaged from strong antibiotics.
How does strong antibiotic damage kidneys?
Every medication that you take is filtered out of you blood by your kidneys and excreted in the urine. Strong antibiotics produce large amount of wastes causing renal tubules damage. In addition, antibiotics may interact with some other medicines such as hypertensive drugs and medicines to lower high blood sugar levels. These reactions may induce inflammation on kidneys, causing kidney damaged.
Treatment for kidney damage caused by strong antibiotics
● Consult your doctor to reduce or cut off certain medicines if necessary.
● Help yourself with some home remedies such as:
-Drinking at least 64 ounces of water every day to flush your kidneys.
-Drinking a glass of cranberry juice everyday while taking antibiotics. This fruit helps prevent bacteria from sticking on urinary tract which can protect the kidneys.
-Reduce sodium and protein intake to reduce burden on kidneys.
-Avoid acetaminophen and pain killers while on antibiotics.
-Monitor your blood pressure and blood sugar levels.
-Do not smoke
● Taking medicines that can increase the discharge of waste in the kidneys.
In that case, I recommend you to take Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In our hospital, Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we have rich experience on this field. Our main methods are:
-Maikang composition: It is one bottle of Chinese patent medicine taken by kidney disease patients each day. It is the first step to detox the kidneys by promoting Qi (energy flow) and unlock meridians.
-Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It is an external application used on bilateral Shenshu acupoints. It can improve blood circulation and enhance kidney function so that waste can be excreted effectively and naturally.
