Associations of sugar-sweetened and artificially sweetened soda with chronic kidney disease: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

​Regular consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages may increase an individual's susceptibility to chronic kidney disease (CKD).

This study investigated whether regular drinking of sugar and artificially-sweetened soda affect the odds of developing chronic kidney disease (CKD). A team of researchers from Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, USA, analyzed data extracted from five (5) studies that examined the correlation between the consumption of sweetened soda and chronic kidney disease risk.

Researchers observed that individuals who regularly drank sugar-sweetened soda had high chances of having chronic kidney disease. According to this study, increased intake of artificially-sweetened soda did not affect the odds of developing chronic kidney disease. The results of this study show that habitual drinking of sugar-sweetened soda may contribute positively to the development of chronic kidney diseases.
