South Carolina Attorneys for Complications Suffered From Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs)
Proton Pump inhibitors (PPIs) have been linked to kidney disease, heart attacks, Hypomagnesemia and possibly causing Dementia. PPIs that consumers may recognize include Nexium, Prilosec, Prevacid and Protonix.
Proton pump inhibitors prevent your body from producing too much stomach acid. This can help offset conditions such as:
- Acid reflux
- Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD
- Peptic Ulcer Disease, or PUD
- Ulcers of the stomach
Warning Label Required by FDA on Nexium
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has required a warning label on Nexium since December of 2014. As the FDA warning states that Acute Interstitial Nephritis (AIN) has been observed in patients taking Nexium.
Link Between PPIs and Kidney Disease Noted in Medical Study
In a recent study, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) concluded that taking Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) increased a patient’s risk of developing chronic kidney disease (CKD).
