A meta-analysis indicated less progression to chronic kidney disease in individuals consuming alcoholic beverages. A meta-analysis investigated the association between a high consumption of alcoholic beverages and progression of kidney damage including chronic kidney disease (CKD) and proteinuria end-stage renal disease (ESRD) (*). Twenty studies with a total of 292,431 patients were included. The relative risk of CKD, and proteinuria was reduced by 17 % and 15 % even with high alcohol consumption. ESRD and high alcohol intake were not…

Drinking pattern and chronic kidney disease

Responsible drinking pattern might reduce risk of chronic kidney disease. A Japanese study examined whether the drinking pattern combined with the weekly frequency of alcohol consumption and the quantity per drinking day is associated with the risk of CKD. 9,112 Japanese non-diabetic men, aged 40 to 55 years, participated and were classified into non-drinkers, 1-3 drinking days/week and 4-7 drinking days/week. The amount consumed per drinking day was 0.1-23.0 g ethanol/drinking day, 23.1-46.0 g ethanol/drinking day, 46.1-69.0 g ethanol/drinking day,…
Moderate consumption of alcoholic beverages may lower risk of developing chronic kidney disease in diabetics. An international group of scientists analysed data from an observational study to examine the association between modifiable lifestyle and social factors and the incidence and progression of early chronic kidney disease (CKD) with type 2 diabetes. 6,972 individuals were studied and important risk factors were adjusted. During the five and a half years of follow-up, 31% developed CKD and 15% died. The results indicated that…
Moderate consumption of alcoholic beverages seems to be beneficial in the risk of chronic kidney disease. The recent epidemic of obesity is considered as the cause of the worldwide increase in metabolic complications, some of which leading to chronic kidney disease (CKD) and type 2 diabetes. CKD now affects 4 %–13 % of the Western adult population and more than 25% of individuals over 65. It is a health problem that results in high morbidity, mortality, and healthcare costs. In…
The intake of alcoholic beverages might lower the risk of Parkinson’s disease. Wine does not seem to show any specific beneficial effects. The causes of Parkinson’s disease involve both genetic and environmental factors, but the genetic factor only accounts for a small part of all causes. Actually, previous studies showed that behaviors such as smoking and coffee drinking were associated with a reduced risk of Parkinson’s disease. However, up-to-date results from the observational studies on the consumption of alcoholic beverages…
