Being dependent on oral antibiotics? It may up kidney stones risk

The condition is, however, associated with bacterial changes in the intestines and urinary tract, leading investigators to study the relationship between antibiotics and kidney stones.

According to a new study, it is suggested that consuming antibiotics on a regular basis can get you into the risks of kidney stones. The risks for children under 18 were significantly higher than for adults. He says high-risk children, like those who've already had a kidney stone, should probably take antibiotics that are less associated with stones.

According to Gregory E. Tasian who is a pediatric urologist and the leader of this research, the entire prevalence regarding kidney stones has seen an increase of around 70% in the last 30 years. The theory is that the drugs wipe out some of the gut bacteria which breaks down oxalate, which is the key component in kidney stones.

The use of oral antibiotics is associated with an increased risk of developing kidney stones, according to a USA scientific study that makes such a correlation for the first time.

The scientists are now expanding their research into broader studies as part of a wider effort to understand how changes to the microbiome affect the risk of developing kidney stones.

It's estimated that about 30 percent of antibiotic prescriptions are inappropriate.

The FDA says that people should avoid consuming certain eggs that originated from Rose Acre Farms in Hyde County, North Carolina. Salmonella symptoms such as diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps start 12 hours to three days after eating contaminated food.

"I think this is the tip of the iceberg", Tasian says.

Now, that the link has been established between antibiotics and stones.

Experts say its not surprising because children take more antibiotics than any other group.

Drawing on health records from the United Kingdom, the team analysed prior antibiotic exposure for almost 26,000 patients with kidney stones and compared them with almost 260,000 control subjects. They tracked antibiotic exposure three to 12 months before the diagnosis. The drugs ranged from broad-spectrum penicillins, which increased the risk by 27 percent, to sulfa drugs, which were associated with more than double the risk.

In a paper published to the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, a team from the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia has searched through more than 20 years of data to find a possible link between the taking of oral antibiotics and the development of kidney stones.
