Kidney Disease Associated With Diets High In Artificially Sweetened Drinks And Sodium

November 2, 2009: 06:16 AM EST
White women whose diets include high levels of sodium or artificially-sweetened beverages are more at risk of kidney problems, according to two studies presented at a recent medical conference. Researchers examined the health histories of 3,000 Caucasian women who were part of a nurses study. Consuming two or more servings a day of artificially sweetened soda doubled the chances of kidney function decline, they found. The researchers were careful to note that they found no link between intake of sugary drinks and kidney disease, and that their findings did not apply to men, or to women of other ethnicities.
