Sixteen cases of acute kidney injury
following the use of synthetic cannabinoids were identified in the United States in 2012, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Acute Kidney Injury
complicates approximately 5 to 15% of hospitalizations, and is associated with a five-fold or more increase in hospital mortality rates.

Researchers from University of British Columbia and the Lady Davis Institute at the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal studied more than two million statin users and found that patients taking higher strength pills were more at risk of suffering acute kidney injury

Although available data do not show a risk of acute kidney injury
when the OTC products are taken at the lower doses for laxative use, when used at higher doses for bowel cleansing they are associated with the same risks as the prescription OSP products.
They cover kidney function; the prevention, treatment, and management of disorders associated with chronic kidney disease; nutrition issues associated with different populations, disorders such as acute kidney injury

Studies Examine Use of Biomarkers in Patients with Risk Factors for Acute Kidney Injury
The model showed that iso-osmolar contrast media was associated with lower overall cost nearly $700 savings per patient - when compared to low-osmolar contrast media in regard to contrast-induced acute kidney injury
According to nephrologists from University of Alabama at Birmingham, nephrotoxicity - the poisonous effect of a substance on the kidneys - from designer drugs such as SPICE or K2, which mimic the effects of marijuana but are man-made and cannot be detected in routine drug tests, should be considered when a patient presents with acute kidney injury
and no other evident cause.
That acute kidney injury
has set in, it is rather too late.
