Nearly 11 percent of men and 7 percent of women develop kidney stones at least once. While patients are usually told to drink plenty of fluids to reduce their chances of having repeat kidney stones, researchers have found that people who consume certain drinks have an increased risk of the problem. In fact, those who have at least one sugar-sweetened soda every day have a 33 percent greater likelihood of developing kidney stones compared with those who drink fewer than one serving a week, according to a Brigham and Womenâs Hospital study released Wednesday. The researchers also found that certain drinks were associated with a decreased risk, including coffee (both caffeinated and decaffeinated), tea, wine, beer, and orange juice.
