Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) are often used to treat conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), dyspepsia, acid reflux, and peptic or stomach ulcers. Common names for PPIs include

  • Prilosec
  • Prevacid
  • AcipHex
  • Protonix
  • Nexium
  • Zegerid
  • Dexilant
  • Vimovo

PPIs have been linked to various kidney injuries. These include interstitial nephritis and inflammation of the kidneys which can result in a chronic or permanent injury. Since 2007, there have been no warnings or label changes in spite of overwhelming evidence that taking PPIs result in various kidney injuries.

A study released in 2016 by the Journal of American Society of Nephrology found that 96% of patients taking a PPI had an increased risk of developing kidney failure, and 28% of patients had an increased risk for developing kidney disease.
