    You need either "Drinking cold drinks" (plural noun, no article required) or "Drinking a cold drink" (singular noun, article required).

    "your sugar level" means nothing. The drink itself has a sugar level or sugar content but a person doesn't. Are you talking about changes to your blood sugar?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    "up to an extent that can be harmful."

    I'd suggest you delete 'up'. You already have 'increase'. It increases to a certain level.

    PS: Drinking cold drinks won't increase "your sugar level" unless the drink has sugar in it.

    Cold drinks do have sugar in them.


    1) Drinking a cold drink can increase your sugar level to an extent that can be harmful.

    2) Drinking a cold drink can increase your sugar level to a limit that can be harmful.

    Nonsense. Some do. Try iced tea. Try cold water.
    This is the fallacy of overgeneralisation - it's good to avoid it.
