Abstract:

Energy drinking among college students is widespread and known to cause significant harms and hazards for the drinker. In this study we have determined the prevalence estimate of energy drinks among college female students in Jazan University such as Bison, Power Horse and Red Bull which may effect on blood chemistry, and determine correlation of consumption with study pattern, urination, health problems, heart pulses, nausea, abdominal pain, diabetes, menstrual period problems and headache. We made questionnaire that assessed consumption patterns of energy drinks among these students and withdraw blood samples for analysis. The consumers were divided into two groups regular and irregular consumers. This study showed that energy drinks are diuretic. There is a significant relation between energy drink consumption and health problems, and it also proved the strong effect of energy drinks stoppage for regular consumers. There is no effect of energy drink on blood chemistry and on Follicle stimulating Hormone.
