I am waiting for a THR but told I will have a long wait as there is a very very long waiting list of "months" [sad]I had a full blood test three weeks ago which showed I could have kidney disease so have to have it repeated next week. I googled "high kidney creatinine" and one of the side effects for this was taking NSAIDS over a long period. Last week I had a UTI and was prescribed an antibiotic. I have never had problems with my kidneys/bladder so I decided to stop taking iboprufen or naproxen to see if my creatinine level would have gone down in my next blood test in two weeks time. I'm in agony now so I will have to start taking iboprufen/naproxen again
I'm not diabetic nor overweight nor is my blood pressure elevated. Is there anyone on here who found out their Creatinine/Urea level in their blood test had only increased due to taking NSAIDS? I'm in so much pain in my hip I've had to give in and start taking them again but I'm worrying a lot. If anyone has any ideas I would be very grateful. Thank you.
