Methods of preventing exercise-induced acute renal failure (ALPE) and relapse have not been established as the etiology and pathogenesis of ALPE remain to be clarified. However, the following points are important.
  1. 1.

    Sprinting in an athletics meeting should be avoided if the athlete has a cold.

  2. 2.

    Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) should not be taken before exercise.

  3. 3.

    Exercise should be avoided in conditions of high temperature or humidity, and suitable preparatory exercise must be performed.

  4. 4.

    Repeated anaerobic exercise should be avoided.

  5. 5.

    The prevention of dehydration is essential (water supplementation, no exercise after drinking alcohol).

  6. 6.

    ALPE frequently develops and recurs in patients with renal hypouricemia, and caution is needed. When a relapse is suspected, patients should immediately consult a hospital without taking analgesic agents (NSAIDs). In particular, caution is needed when the patient’s base-line serum uric acid level is 1.0 mg/dl or less.
