3 Medical Conditions That Can Be Caused By Regular Soda Intake

Soda drink is a drink that can also be called soft drink, fizzy drink, soda pop, or just plain-old pop. 

When consumed in excess, added sugar can adversely affect your health. Soda drinks are drinks that contain carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup (sugar), caramel colour, caffeine, phosphoric acid, citric acid, natural flavours, carbon dioxide, organic diol, and Brominated vegetable oil (BVO).

Soda drinks are good and sweet when consumed. However, some sources of sugar are worse than others and drinks that contain sugar are by far the worst. This primarily applies to sugary soda but also fruit juices, highly sweetened coffees, and other sources of liquid sugar.


Some of the medical conditions caused by too much soda intake include. 

1. Diabetes

Soda when consumed in excess leads to an increase in your risk of diabetes by negatively affecting gut bacteria, insulin secretion, and sensitivity. They also lead to a spike in your blood sugar levels when a person consumes carbohydrates. This can make insulin sensitivity and blood sugar management degenerate.

2. Frequent urination

Sweet tea and soda have some things in common that can trigger urinary problems. Soda drinks can cause frequent urination by stimulating the bladder, so you use the restroom more often when you drink soda regularly.

3. High blood pressure

Too much soda consumption can cause an increase in your blood pressure. Drinking lots of sugar-sweetened drinks may raise blood pressure. Moreover, many sugary drinks also have caffeine in them, which can lead to a rise in your blood pressure.

Reduce your intake of soda to prevent these 3 health complications.
