Alcohol Use Disorder Tied to Development of Chronic Kidney Disease: A Nationwide Database Analysis

Individuals battling with alcohol use disorder tend to have greater risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD).

This study examined the correlation between alcoholism (alcohol use disorder) and the odds of acquiring chronic kidney disease (CKD). Data from over 50,000 Taiwanese men and women were analyzed to estimate the risk of chronic kidney disease according to alcohol drinking patterns. 

Researchers found a 2-fold increase in the risk of chronic kidney disease among participants with alcohol use disorder. This study suggests that alcoholism may foster the development of chronic kidney disease.
