Acute Interstitial Nephritis / Acute Kidney Injury

Acute interstitial nephritis and acute kidney injury can appear within 120 days of beginning one of these drugs. In many people, the injuries can ultimately progress or manifest as chronic kidney disease or kidney failure.

PPI Dangers in Published Studies

Two studies published in 2016, which appear to be of high quality, ran multiple control groups that appear to prove the dangerous effects of these drugs.  At this time, the injuries appear to be related to hypomagnesemia as the mechanism of action. Other studies dating back to the early 2000s show signals for the same injuries and the same mechanism of injury. Some studies have shown the effects for each separate drug in the PPI class.
