Overview

Medical Therapy

Treatment of analgesic nephropathy begins with the discontinuation of analgesics, which often halts the progression of the disease and may even result in normalization of kidney function.[1] After this depending on the damage to kidneys done, kidney transplant or kidney dialysis may be required.An appropriate diet and lifestyle changes may be required.
