If a person had a renal disorder, how would this affect their drug metabolism of an antibiotic?

  1. Writeacher

    You really should ask a doctor. We have no medical doctors here who are also tutors.

    You can also go to Google and enter person with renal disorder affected by antibiotics --- and read, read, read.

    It depends on the disorder. Generally, antibiotics will last longer in the body, so doses will be more potent, the side effects more pronounced, and longer. In the cases of prolonged renal failure, doctors will prescribe lower doses of antibiotics to prevent this, but again, it depends on the renal "disorder".
