Drinking soda and sweetened beverages may increase the risk of chronic kidney disease.

WASHINGTON: According to a study, people who drink a lot of sweetened drinks and soda can be at greater risk of chronic kidney disease.

The results, published in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (CJASN), contribute to an increase in the amount of evidence pointing to the negative health effects of consuming sweetened beverages.

Certain drinks may affect kidney health, but the results of the study were inconsistent.

Researchers at the Joom Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in the United States studied 3,003 African-American men and women with normal kidney function.

“From IANS, the road to happier you is good nutrition and conscious nutrition, as well as avoiding too much caffeine and sugar,” said Rueben Ghosh, co-founder and culinary director of Yumlane, and Kashmiri Barkakati, food expert at Momspresso. Here's how to do it right.

“There is no comprehensive information on the health effects of a wide range of drinks available in the food supply,” said Casey Rebholz from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health in Bloomberg.

“In particular, there is limited information about what types of drinks and their compositions are associated, in particular, with the risk of kidney disease,” said Rebholz.

The researchers evaluated the consumption of beverages using a questionnaire on the frequency of food intake, which was introduced at the beginning of the study in 2000–04, and they followed the participants until 2009–13.

Among the 3,003 participants, 185 (6%) developed chronic kidney disease (CKD) during an average follow-up of 8 years.


Consumption of a drink consisting of soda, sweet fruit drinks and water was associated with a higher risk of developing CKD.

Participants in the upper tertile of consuming this drink were 61% more likely to get CKD than in the lower tertile.

The researchers were surprised to see that the water was a component of this drink, which was associated with a higher risk of CKD.

They noted that study participants may have reported their consumption of a wide range of water types, including flavored and sweetened water.

Save your heart

Heart failure or heart failure is a clinical condition in which the heart loses its ability to emit blood to meet the needs of body tissues.

Patients with chronic heart failure are at constant risk of losing weight due to health conditions, as well as low food intake due to poor appetite, depression or loss of appetite due to drug consumption.
