Can an unknown allergy affect the kidneys?

Q: Thanks to DoctorNDTV. With your suggestion and my doctor's help my disease has been clarified. After doing all tests as suggested by DoctorNDTV, my doctor came to a conclusion that it is an allergy which affects my kidney temporarily followed by protinurea. As I am not able to find the cause of the allergy which is affecting my kidney, please tell me about some institution / hospital / doctors who will help me in this regard. My doctor has advised me to take one Cetrizin daily. Is there any medicine better than this? Which is the best way of taking anti-allergy medicines (morning or evening, before or after food)?

A:There could be variety of reasons for your allergy. Most probable ones include consumption of some form of herbal medicines, some antibiotics, viral and bacterial infections, painkillers like ibuprofen and sometimes dietary agents. No studies to date have shown any benefits of cetrizine or similar agents in treating this condition. Some studies have shown that a short course of steroids (Prednisone) may shorten the course of disease. But the best therapy is to remove the offending agent responsible for the disease condition.
