In brief: Excess fluid
It is not the sugar, unless the person is also a diabetic, but the amount of fluid.
Those on dialysis are restricted fluid intake. There are other dietary restrictions.

In brief: Depends
If you are on dialysis, the less sugar in the diet, the better. However certain soft drinks like dark sodas (coke, pepsi) have a high concerntraion of phosphorus.
Dialysis patients must avoid high phosphorus foods or these levels will lead to calcifications and bone disease.
