Do Statin Drugs Contribute to Renal Failure

Do Statin Drugs Contribute to Renal FailureRenal Failure is the result of various chronic kidney diseases. And some external factors also can speed up the deterioration of renal function. Well then, do statin drugs contribute to kidney failure?

What are the statins?

Statin drugs are the commonly prescribed drugs for treating high cholesterol level.When high levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or “bad cholesterol” are present, they can begin to build up in your blood vessels, causing a blockage. Statins work by blocking an enzyme in your liver that controls cholesterol production. Some are even able to help decrease the amount that has already started to form in blood vessels.

Can the drugs lead to renal failure?

Actually, there is no accurate answer. Because different patients have different illness conditions. But as a matter of fact, high-dosage intake of statin drugs will increase risk of kidney damage. What’s more, kidney damage is one of several reported risks and side effects for statins. Others include pain or weakness in the muscles, confusion, loss of memory, flushing, and rashes. You may also suffer liver damage, muscle damage, blood sugar spikes (which could increase your risk for type 2 diabetes), or digestive problems like diarrhea, gas, nausea, and constipation. If these side effects cannot be treated well, more and more organs will be involved. Therefore, you’d better never take the medicines unless getting the professional guidance.

Well then, is there any other medicines without side effects?
