I have had two miscarriages. I was drinking soft drinks all day long and I noticed when I was drinking them that I was awful dry. Does this mean that I have a hormone imbalance? I have three children. Thank you for your help.
Do soft drinks cause miscarriage?
I am sorry to hear about your miscarriages. There are many factors in diet, nutrition, environment, and hormones that can affect the risk of miscarriages. A doctor with special training in NaProTechnology could help sort out what may be the most likely factors in your particular case. Excessive thirst is certainly a sign that should be checked out, especially if it continues despite eliminating soft drinks and restricting your drinks solely to water. Soft drinks themselves are incredibly damaging to your body on many levels. As far a body’s health is concerned, drinking soft drinks is like drinking turpentine. If you want to see this in action, try pouring your favorite soft drink on something painted that you do not care about and leave it there overnight and watch what happens the paint. In the case of miscarriages, there may not be any studies yet checking its connection with soft drinks, but there have been several studies that have checked caffeineand it appears to be that the more caffeine a mother drinks above 200mg, the higher her miscarriage risk. So it is wise to keep asking and always be careful what you put in your body, especially during pregnancy. Peter Sultana, MD
