Can Prilosec cause kidney damage and low total conductivity in urinalysis?
Normal no protein in urine.
But it is normal to have no protein in the urine. However, the conductivity of low then this means that you might have deficient electrolytes.
It is important to note that Prilosec can cause a deficiency of sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium. So I would recommend that you take a blood test to measure the levels of these electrolytes in the blood.
If the conductivity is high, this means there is an increased burden on the kidneys. This could be due to dehydration.
So make sure that you drink at least eight cups of water daily or it could mean that there are impaired renal functions owing to the side effects exerted by Prilosec on the kidneys.
So, I would recommend that you take a blood test to asses the renal functions including urea and creatinine.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Normally urea in blood ranges between 7-20 mg/dl, while blood creatinine level ranges between 0.6-1.1mg/dl.
If found high then this is an indication of impaired renal functions and it can be corrected by using medications that will require a prescription from your doctor.
Hope I have answered your query.
