Sweetened Drinks Linked To Higher Risk Of Chronic Kidney Disease

NEWS

Higher collective consumption of sweetened fruit drinks, soda, and water was associated with a higher likelihood of developing chronic kidney disease in a community-based study of African-American adults in the United States. The findings contribute to the growing body of evidence pointing to the negative health consequences of consuming sugar-sweetened beverages.

COMMENT

Chronic kidney disease is a growing global health problem. A systematic review and meta-analysis published in 2016 assessed data on almost 7 million patients and found that all stages of this disease are associated with increased risks of cardiovascular morbidity, premature mortality, and/or decreased quality of life.

With a high global prevalence of between 11 and 13 percent, chronic kidney disease places a major economic burden on healthcare systems worldwide. While conventional drug-oriented medicine has failed to successfully prevent or treat it, numerous studies clearly show that micronutrient-based approaches are safe and effective in controlling it.
