Sugar-sweetened beverage intake may increase levels of uric acid, a compound linked to decreased kidney function, a new study says.

The report, covering data from 16,000 respondents, found the risk of chronic kidney disease increased by 150% in those who have more than one soda drink per day and had high levels of uric acid.

Researchers from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York said that fructose, when detected in high levels, led to increased production of uric acid.

Another study, however, did not find a link between consumption of fructose from fructose-containing foods and beverages, and a high level of uric acid, hyperuricaemia.

Findings from almost 10,000 participants of the US NHANES 1999–2004 databases did not support a link between fructose consumption and hyperuricaemia.
