Coffee Drinkers May Have Lower Kidney Disease Risk
Moderate coffee consumption has been suggested to be associated with lower risk for chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart vessel blockages and even lower risk of certain cancers. In this recently published research study in American Journal of Kidney Diseases, it was found that people who drink coffee on a regular basis, have lower chances of developing chronic kidney disease.
Compared with participants in the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Study who never consumed coffee, those who consumed <1 cup per day and those who consumed 1–<2 cups per day had a 10% lower risk, those who consumed 2–<3 cups per day had a 13% reduced risk, and those who consumed ≥3 cups per day had a 16% reduced risk, after adjustments.
In continuous analysis, for each additional cup of coffee consumed per day, the risk for incident CKD was lower by 3%.
A previously published meta-analysis identified 4 cohort studies that found no significant association between coffee and CKD, but the pooled results suggested a potential inverse association among women. These 4 prior studies were conducted in Italy, Japan, and Korea.
