Serious side effects of aspirin that you should be aware of

2 Renal

The mechanism of an aspirin-induced decrease in renal function may be related to inhibition of renal prostaglandin synthesis with consequent decrease in renal blood flow. Renal side effects have included reduction in glomerular filtration rate in cases with patients who are sodium restricted or who exhibit diminished effective arterial blood volume (patients with advanced heart failure or cirrhosis), interstitial nephritis, papillary necrosis, elevations in serum creatinine, elevations in blood urea nitrogen, proteinuria, hematuria, and renal failure.
