A 21-year-old Man Who Drank 4 Energy Drinks A Day Hospitalized

 

 

 

 

A 21-year-old man was hospitalized for heart failure and kidney failure after drinking more than half a gallon worth of energy drink every day for two years, according to a case study published April 15 in BMJ Case Reports.

Although he eventually recovered, the man was initially considered as a candidate for organ transplants, and he spent more than a week in intensive care, and nearly two months total in the hospital.

The patient drank four 500 milliliter cans of energy drink daily, wrote the study authors from St Thomas’ Hospital in London.

That’s about 640 mg of caffeine a day, well over the recommended safe dosage of 400 mg of caffeine, according to the FDA.

“I think there should be more awareness about energy drink and the effect of their contents. I believe they are very addictive and far too accessible to young children,” the patient said in the case study report.

For months prior to being hospitalized, he had been suffering symptoms such as tremors, shortness of breath, and indigestion so severe he dropped out of university.

The case highlights the potentially toxic side effects of energy drinks that contain huge doses of caffeine, which can lead to serious and sometimes life-threatening health issues.
