Consuming more caffeine will help to reduce the risk of death for people with chronic kidney disease. According to a study, caffeine helps to increase the release of nitric acid which improves the function of the vascular vessel.
Chronic kidney disease is at a high risk of death and is continuously increasing so consuming the caffeine can reduce the risk to some extent.
Miguel Bigotte Vieira, the lead author of the study said that “Our study showed a protective effect of caffeine consumption among patients with chronic kidney disease.The reduction in mortality was present even after considering other important factors such as age, gender, race, smoking, and diet.”
He added that “These results suggest that advising patients with kidney disease to drink more caffeine may reduce their mortality. This would represent a simple, clinically beneficial, and inexpensive option, though this benefit should ideally be confirmed in a randomised clinical trial,”
Viera even emphasized that the study cannot prove that caffeine reduces the risk of death in patients with chronic kidney disease but it can be a possible protective effect.
