Is Coffee Bad for Kidneys

Is Coffee Bad for Kidneys? Is coffee bad for kidneys? Research has shown it to be both bad for your kidneys and great for your health. Eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly have a strong effect on the relationship between coffee consumption and your kidneys.  Coffee is a risk for kidneys because significant scientific studies linked calcium oxalate stones (the most common form of kidney stones) with regular coffee because it contains oxalate and other scientific studies revealed coffee to be a risk factor for polycystic kidney disease (PKD) progression (Chauhan).   PKD is inherited due to abnormal genes in the family line and complications lead to high blood pressure, cysts growing larger, chronic pain, aneurysms in the brain which can lead to ruptures, developing mitral valve prolapse, diverticular disease, and the worst progression of the disease leads to kidney failure with transplants or dialysis needed for survival (Mayo Clinic).
