SSB consumption was associated with risk of hyperuricemia and gout in adults.
A systematic review of 10 eligible studies was conducted, and meta-analysis performed on cohort and case-control studies for gout, and cross-sectional studies for hyperuricemia. Overall, significant associations were found between SSB consumption and risk of gout in both cohort and case-control studies. In cross-sectional studies on hyperuricemia, SSB consumption was associated with 35% greater odds of hyperuricemia. Studies were insufficient to analyse fructose intake and risk of gout and hyperuricemia.
