Have not seen that: I have not seen herpes cause renal failure, but sometimes strange things can happen to an unlucky person with any disease. The medications to treat herpes, such as Acyclovir and valtrex, (valacyclovir) can cause renal failure if a patient already has decreased renal function, is taking large doses of the anti-virals, or is taking other medications (that also affect the kidneys) at the same time. ...Read more
Increase urea levels: The kidneys are the cleansing organs through which all the blood flows in and dangerous by products of the body are filtered and removed through the urine. Everything the body needs is returned to the blood from the kidneys. As the kidneys fail, a protein breakdown product called urea builds up, and when high enough builds up in the skin causing itching. Transplant and/or dialysis may follow. ...Read more
Doubt it: Herpes can do some odd things, but I've not encountered renal failure from it. People w/genital herpes may choose not to treat it, either because they don't have symptoms or because their symptoms are so mild. For most of the 50 million americans with genital herpes, the infection is an annoyance, and can be emotionally or socially bothersome, but is rarely a serious infection. ...Read more

Accumulation: Tenofovir, or viread, (tenofovir) is a powerful antiviral medication for hiv. It has, in rare cases, been thought to contribute to renal failure. The thought is that the drug and metabolites of the drug accumulate in the tubule of the kidneys, causing damage to the filtering system. However, some studies have shown that tenovir is no more toxic than other antivirals. ...Read more

Lidney Toxic meds: Otc meds that are often toxic are nsaids like Motrin alleve and Aspirin (not low dose). Antihistamine decongestants can cause urinary retention in men with large prostates. Some prescription hypertension meds can shut down the kidney (ace or renin inhibitors or blockers). Some antibiotics, psychiatric and chemotherapy meds are directly toxic. Many drugs can cause allergic kidney reactions. ...Read more
Meloxicam: Meloxicam, like other nsaids, can affect kidney function. This usually isn't an issue in young healthy adults, but patients with other risk factors such as diabetes, high blood pressure, smoking, etc, have to be very careful if they use prescription or over the counter nsaids. Tramadol is a pain medication and would not typically affect kidney function. ...Read more
Unknown toxicity: Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin involved in essential pathways of cellular metabolism. Biotin deficiency is rare, as it is found in many foods, while overt toxicity is unknown. Oral biotin supplementation has been tolerated in doses up to 200, 000 mcg per day in patients with biotin metabolism disorders or 5, 000 mcg per day in normal adults. Note: the RDA for normal adults is 25-35 mcg per day. ...Read more

Quite the Opposite: In 2009 there was a conference on taurine. I just read some of the proceedings of that conference along with an extensive review of the renal effects of taurine.

So, taurine has an overall beneficial role to play in the kidney. ...Read more

How does increase amount of the carbon dioxide in the blood affect kidney and causes renal failure?
Carbon Dioxide: Good question. Your kidneys have many functions. One is to maintain ph balance. When your body accumulates too much carbon dioxide (co2) your kidneys work to eliminate it. Co2 makes your body more acidic. The acidity not only makes your kidneys work harder, but it also makes all body functions less efficient. Over time this can cause kidney failure. This is not a common cause of kidney failure. ...Read more
Does metformin cause cancer or renal failure? Why does my doc want me to take 1000 mg of metformin a day? Is it 2 much?
Doc trying to help: Your doc is trying to control your blood sugar. Metformin can cause kidney problems in people who already have an underlying kidney condition, but most of the time it will help your kidneys by preventing diabetes related problems. The max dose is 2500 mg/d, so 1000 mg is not too high. If you really care about your health, quit drinking and eat a healthy diet free from sugar and refined flour. ...Read more
