An expert advisory panel of medical specialists has advised people to avoid using soft drinks at iftar. They stated that after hours of fasting, carbonated drinks affect kidney functions and cause organ failure.

While speaking to a local media channel, the experts suggested drinking homemade fresh juices as an alternative to soft drinks, as fresh juices are easily absorbed during digestion.

Homemade drinks like lemonade, milk soda, and others are more effective in combating thirst than fizzy drinks.

The medical specialists added fizzy drinks at iftar may also lead to several diseases, including diarrhea, gastroenteritis, dehydration, renal problems, and even cancer.

“People should drink cold water as it gets easily consumed by a stomach rather than a soft drink.”

A Kidney expert, Dr. Sana Basit, suggested that kidney patients must take suhoor (pre-dawn meals) to avoid body weakness. She emphasized that such people need more calories than healthy people.

Dr. Sana also highlighted that patients should avoid using a high amount of sodium, potassium, and phosphorus, especially during Ramadan.
