Pain Meds: How They Work and Safe Alternatives

Kidney disease is difficult enough without suffering needlessly. Many over-the-counter medications are harmful to the kidneys. What can you do to take control of pain without causing more damage? If you, or someone you know has kidney disease, it’s especially important to be in the know about options to relieve pain. Lori and nephrologist Dr. Mary J. Godinich discuss the side effects of medications and the differences between over-the-counter pain relievers and some safe alternatives.
