Self-Prescribed Antibiotics Almost Cost Architect Her Life

Architect narrowly avoids life-threatening complications after self-medicating with internet-sourced antibiotics

Hyderabad: A woman architect in Secunderabad narrowly avoided life-threatening kidney complications after taking antibiotics prescribed by her father, who researched her symptoms online. Doctors at the Asian Institute of Nephrology and Urology (AINU) treated the patient for a severe kidney infection and the formation of stone-like structures called matrix in her kidneys, all stemming from self-medication.

Dr. Raghavendra Kulkarni, a Urologist at AINU, explained that the patient’s reliance on internet-based diagnoses and incomplete antibiotic courses led to antibiotic resistance and the formation of matrix, a potentially life-threatening condition. Despite having undergone surgery for kidney stones 18 months ago, the patient opted for self-treatment instead of seeking professional advice for recurring symptoms.

    The patient’s condition required intervention at AINU, where doctors initially diverted the blocked urine before removing the stones surgically. Post-surgery, the patient revealed a history of taking antibiotics for UTI symptoms but consistently stopping courses midway.

    Dr. Kulkarni emphasized the importance of avoiding self-prescription and completing prescribed antibiotic courses, highlighting the potentially severe consequences of such actions.
