According to new studies, added sugars increase kidney stone risk.

People who consume more than 25% of their energy from added sugars have an 88% higher risk of kidney stones than those who get less than 5%.

Health experts recommend simple strategies to reduce daily added sugar intake.

Added sugars should be considered kidney stone risk factors. According to a groundbreaking Frontiers in Nutrition study.

A systematic investigation of 28,303 persons' self-reported kidney stone history and daily added sugar intake from 2007 to 2018 in the US National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey led to the current study.
