Association of alcohol consumption with the incidence of proteinuria and chronic kidney disease: a retrospective cohort study in Japan

Fondness for alcohol may edge a woman closer to developing chronic kidney disease (CKD).

The presence of proteins in urine (proteinuria) and low estimated glomerular filitration rate (eGFR) are markers of chronic kidney disease (CKD). This study analyzed the alcohol-CKD connection hypothesis. Researchers matched alcohol drinking habits with the presence/absence of proteinuria and CKD in a study group made up of nearly 27,000 Japanese men and women. 

Researchers identified a rising incidence of protenuria and CKD among high consumers of alcohol, especially among women. This study concluded that heavy consumption of alcohol may give rise to CKD in women.
