Can my husband drink Hibiscus Tea if he is on Warfarin. He take 5mg. Daily. His INR has to be 2.0 to 3.0...Thank you?

Can my husband drink Hibiscus Tea if he is on Warfarin. He take 5mg. Daily. His INR has to be 2.0 to 3.0...Thank you?

Not sure: I couldn't find anything specifically about HIBISCUS tea, but tea in general can both antagonize warfarin (lower the INR) and also promote bleeding by interfering with platelet function which won't show up in the INR. That said, I'll bet a lot of people on warfarin drink tea, so if he loves tea, I'd say use it cautiously and monitor the INR. ...Read more

Why drinking fluids don't compensate the need of water (for e.g:if I drink a cup of unsweetened tea, the need of water through the day don't decrease?)?

Why drinking fluids don't compensate the need of water (for e.g:if I drink a cup of unsweetened tea, the need of water through the day don't decrease?)?

Unsweet tea = fluids: Tea, coffee and soda do qualify as fluids for your body, and it is recommended that adults drink at least 6-8 cups daily. Water is preferred, as it doesn't have chemicals like caffeine or sugars that require extra metabolism or extra calories. Fluid intake should be enough to relieve all thirst and to allow a person to urinate 4-5 times daily with urine that is very light yellow. ...Read more

Every day I drink green tea in the evening I don't have problems with sleep but the day I drink normal tea in mrng I just can't sleep at all why?

Caffeine: There is more caffeine in black tea than in green tea. If you are sensitive to stimulants like caffeine, this could disrupt your sleep.
