In brief: Caution
Great question, and you are right- you can cause kidney damage (and sometimes create heart/liver problems) by using these products.
What you need to know is that they don't work. Stop using any supplements. Make sure you have a primary care provider (doc or physician assistant /nurse practitioner) that you trust, to bring these types of questions to as well as urgent testing if/when necessary.
