Sugar-Sweetened Beverages: Higher Risk of CKD

People who drink lots of sugar-sweetened soda and fruit juices may be more likely to develop chronic kidney disease than those who do not, a US study suggests. Researchers examined survey data on drinkable among 3,003 African-American men and women who were 54 years old on average and did not have kidney disease. After following participants for about 8 to 10 years, found that 185 people, or 6%, developed chronic kidney disease.

Beverage Consumption Associated With Greater KD Risk

Higher collective of sweetened fruit drinks, soda, and water was associated with a higher likelihood of developing chronic kidney disease (CKD) in a community-based study of African-American adults in Mississippi. The findings, which appear in the upcoming issue of the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (CJASN), contribute to the growing body of evidence pointing to the negative health consequences of consuming sugar sweetened beverages.

Chronic Kidney Disease Progression Risk Lower in Women

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) progresses more slowly in women than men, according to a new study. In a study of 3939 adults to mild-to-moderate CKD, women had a significant 28% decreased risk of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and 18% decreased risk of a 50% decline in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) from baseline compared with men, in a fully adjusted model, led by Ana C. Ricardo, MD, of the University of Illinois at Chicago, reported in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology .

Sex Hormones Influence On Chronic Kidney Disease

The majority of end-stage renal disease including dialysis and kidney transplant patients are men. In contrast, the incidence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) is higher in  women compared with men. In this review, we dissect the sex hormone levels and its effects on experimental models and patients with CKD.
