Nephrologist 's  Response
Thanks for your query.
If you are on active treatment for glomerulonephritis or have an elevated blood creatinine levels or protein or blood in the urine it's better to avoid any NSAID painkillers including ace proxyvon.
There are quite a few pain killers available which are safe for the kidneys.
If you speak to your doctor or a nephrologist they should be able to prescribe you some.
Good luck.

Thanks for your query.You are known to have Glomerulo Nephritis and met with an accident rupturing your Tendo Achilles.Your Dr has prescribed Tab Ace Proxyvon as a painkiller .Since these drugs are known to be nephrotoxic It is dangerous to take these drugs and may damage your kidney further.Better you take simple drug like Tab Paracetamol as a pain killer.
