A 25-year Old Boy Get Kidney Failure Due to Frequent Drinking Carbonated BeverageA few days ago, report said that a 25-year old boy drank that more than 20 bottles carbonated beverages each day. Several days later, he suddenly fainted, and was sent to hospital without consciousness.

Then, the doctor made him a blood test, and found that high blood sugar level had reached up to 52.1mmol/L. He was diagnosed with severe diabetes and Kidney Failure. From then on, he had to take medicines every day to maintain his life.

Even though it is a typical case, it alerts people to know the harm of carbonated beverages. It is reported that the sugar level in this kind of drinks is very high, just like a lump of sugar. Such a large amount of sugar needs a long time of metabolism. Therefore, if a person take foods high in sugar for a long term and large dosage, their bodies have to work more to break down this substance. As a result, excess sugar start to build inside the body, causing pancreas to produce more insulin. That will burden the kidneys, and can also damage other organs and systems.

Kidneys cannot get enough oxygen due to persistent heavy work, and cannot filter wastes adequately in a short time. That’s why Acute Kidney Failure (AKF), also called Acute Renal Failure (ARF
) occurs.
