Fructose and Kidney Stones

Fructose in sugar-sweetened sodas may raise the risk of kidney stones

Drinking sugar-sweetened soda may lead to kidney stones.

Researchers tracked more than 194,000 people for roughly eight years. Those who drank at least one serving of sugar-sweetened cola a day had a 23 percent higher risk of kidney stones than those who drank less than one serving a week. Likewise, those who drank at least one serving of sugar-sweetened non-cola a day had a 33 percent higher risk than those who drank less than one serving a week.

Researchers suggest that their fructose may raise the risk of kidney stones by making kidneys excrete more calcium, oxalate, and uric acid. (Most kidney stones are made of calcium oxalate.)
