    Default Here's Another Reason to Avoid Taking Unnecessary Antibiotics

    Jamie Ducharme

    Taking certain oral antibiotics may come with an unpleasant side effect, according to new research.
    A study published Thursday in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology found that taking any of five types of oral antibiotics was associated with a significantly higher risk of developing kidney stones — mineral and salt deposits that form in the kidneys and must be passed through the urinary tract.
    Kidney stones have grown much more common over the past few decades without a clear explanation as to why. 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.

    Over the past few decades, the quinolones family of antibiotics have been deemed deleterious. It's just a matter of time before we realize that most, if not all, oral antibiotics cause long-term damage to our bodies, especially the gut microbiome. In my humble opinion, I believe the unnecessary, over-prescribing of antibiotics is as serious as the opioid crisis. No...not as many deaths, for sure, but the long term damage and the resulting expense for the medical care required to deal with the damage from antibiotic overuse is inestimable.

    Fully agree! Antibiotics may be more abused than opioids.
