Antibiotics to Avoid With Polycystic Kidney Disease

Antibiotics to Avoid With Polycystic Kidney DiseaseIn many countries, Polycystic Kidney Disease is the forth leading cause of kidney failure. With the expansion of kidney cysts, infections especially urinary tract infections occur easily. Then, patients may need to take antibiotics to manage infections, but PKD patients should avoid some antibiotics.

Urinary tract infection is one common complication of PKD, and antibiotics are often used to treat bacterial infections. At present, there are many types of antibiotics in drugstore. Although most antibiotics won’t damage kidneys directly, misuse or overuse of these medications is indeed harmful for kidneys. From this point, patients should use antibiotics carefully.

Besides, they can’t eat any antibiotic or increase their dosage without doctor’s guidance. Otherwise, they may suffer from severe complications and side effects easily.

The answer is no. If patients’ infections are mild, drinking enough water or cranberry juice is just OK to control their infections including urinary tract infections.
