Drinking More Coffee May Reduce Acute Kidney Injury Risk
Drinking two to three cups of coffee a day significantly reduces the risk of acute kidney injury, a prospective cohort study suggests. Participants who drank any quantity of coffee every day had an 11% lower risk of acute kidney injury than those who never drank coffee, report Kalie L. Tommerdahl, MD, of the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, and colleagues, but the largest reductions were seen in the group that drank two to three cups a day.
@laura Coffee intake was greater in White participants, individuals without diabetes, smokers, men, and individuals with normal blood pressure, greater total energy intake each day, and lean body mass index (BMI). The results also showed that greater coffee drinking was linked with reduced acute kidney injury risks compared with those who never consume coffee.
