Peptic ulcers are best treated by proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), however, other simple gastrointestinal (GIT) disorders should be better treated by other acid neutralizing or anti-secretory agents. Unfortunately, most GIT diseases were reported to be treated by PPIs even though non-indicated cases. The reasons might include ease availability with/without prescription, reduce patient awareness, and overprescription of PPIs by the health care professionals. This study aims to highlight the effect of these drugs on the renal function test. Patients were recruited and enrolled in the study from outpatients private clinics and plasma samples were withdrawn from control healthy, esomeprazole and omeprazole users individuals. Plasma samples were frozen for further analysis, creatinine and urea test were conducted on overall samples and the results were displayed confirming significant dysfunctioning of the renal system from PPIs use. The study concluded that creatinine and urea are higher in a patient on esomeprazole than omeprazole and the control group. The study recommends general awareness of the society about regular use of these medications unless otherwise carefully required.
