Welcome to just answer...

There is a controversial role of drinking too much coffee and kidney problems...

Caffiene has long been considered to have a diuretic effect which may in turn be a cause to dehaydration and electrolyte imbalance... However newer studies negate such claims...

Similarly caffiene intake has been associated with reduced risk of renal stones due to beeter fluid intake...

However caffiene intake has been linked to detrusor muscle instability with increased frequency and urgency of urination...

I hope this answers your question...

Do let me know if you have any follow up questions...

Thank you...
