    Effects of carbonated water on functional dyspepsia and constipation.


    OBJECTIVE:

    The effects of carbonated beverages on the gastrointestinal tract have been poorly investigated. Therefore, this study aims to assess the effect of carbonated water intake in patients with functional dyspepsia and constipation.

    RESULTS:

    The dyspepsia score was significantly reduced with carbonated water (before = 7.9 +/- 2.8 after = 5.4 +/- 1.7; 0.05) and remained unmodified after tap water (9.7 +/- 5.3 9.9 +/- 4.0). The constipation score also decreased significantly ( 0.05) after carbonated water (16.0 +/- 3.9 12.1 +/- 4.4; 0.05) and was not significantly different with tap water (14.7 +/- 5.1 13.7 +/- 4.7). Satiety was significantly reduced with carbonated water (before = 447 +/- 146 kcal after = 590 +/- 245; 0.01). Gallbladder emptying (delta percent contraction) was significantly improved only with carbonated water (39.9 +/- 16.1% 53.6 +/- 16.7%; 0.01).
    CONCLUSION:

    In patients complaining of functional dyspepsia and constipation, carbonated water decreases satiety and improves dyspepsia, constipation and gallbladder emptying.
