Medicines and your kidneys (Sep 2019)
Your kidneys play an important role in keeping your body healthy. Their main job is to clear wastes and extra water from the body. Many medicines are also cleared from the body by the kidneys.
Your kidney function may be lower as you get older, or if you have diabetes or high blood pressure.
How well your kidneys work affects how well some medicines are cleared from the body. In addition, some medicines can affect your kidneys.
