Are antibiotics safe for kidney disease patients? This is a very concerned question for patients. Actually, the answer is different according to the different illness condition. Then, how?
Usually, these kind of drugs can be used to treat bacterial infections. and kidney disease patients are prone to suffer from various infection like urinary tract infection, gastrointestinal tract infection, kidney infection and so on due to low immune system. When kidney disease patients are suffering the following symptoms, the doctors may prescribe the certain antibiotic.
-nausea and vomiting
-cold, fever and chill
-skin itching and rash
-bloating stomach or stomach pain
These symptoms can be relieved by the antibiotics. But what I want to stress is that not all antibiotics are available for kidney disease. In addition, the dosage of antibiotics should keep changing along with the changes of illness condition.
There are many types of antibiotics currently. Some antibiotics can help control kidney disease patients’ symptoms, while some others may cause kidney damage or even acute kidney failure.
Some antibiotics like chloromycetin are broken down by liver, so they usually don’t affect kidney function or increase the burden on kidneys. However, most types of antibiotics are discharged out of the body by urine that means kidneys are responsible for breaking down them. In this case, if people have kidney disease, antibiotics such as penicillin and cefoxitin that have renal toxicity should be avoided.
Through the above analysis, we can see that antibiotics is safe for kidney disease if they are used rightly. If you don’t know the dosage of these drugs, please consult your doctor or our online doctors directly and you will get an individualized advice. Best wishes for you!
