Chizhikova pointed out several main risk factors that can contribute to the development of drug-induced kidney damage, including the patient’s age and the presence of concomitant ailments such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.
The doctor also noted that the more medications a person takes at the same time, the higher the likelihood of drug interactions and the risk of kidney damage.
