In brief: Depends

If 1 has no h/o diabetes or pre-diabetes, or uncontrolled high blood pressure, then drinking can of dr. Pepper doesn't directly harm the kidneys.
Damage occurs from longstanding high blood sugar or high bp, among other causes.As sodas have caffeine&loads of sugar, 1 should avoid these if 1 has uncontrolled BP or h/o diabetes.But rmbr that sodas r loaded w/ calories...Too many cal not good for wgt.
