Can Green Tea Cause Anemia
Yes, but a caveat...: Green teas can contain polyphenols, which although serve as antioxidants, can also interfere with fe absorption. The caveat is that the two things (polyphenols and fe) need to be present together for this to really be a problem. If you are eating a balanced diet with adequate fe, and drinking green tea on occasion, I doubt you will have a significant effect from the latter on the former.
Hello, I'm 23 years old and suffer from anemia/heavy blood loss. Does green tea have anything to do with heavy blood loss during periods?
Which alternative to tea with milk in the morning as I feel pain in my heart after drinking it I was diagnosed as a chronic anemia case?
Reflux: It sounds like you are having gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) which occurs when stomach acid comes back up into your esophagus, burning the lining. You should avoid caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine which can make this worse by lowering the pressure in the valve that prevents reflux. You should be checked for H.pylori which is a bacteria that can cause this. GERD can cause anemia.
Can tea be bad for you if you have a B12 deficiency or penicious anemia? Or not help your blood count?
Not a normal: Side effect. Overdose of Green Tea (usually extract) may lead to irritability, insomnia, irregular or rapid heart rate, muscle twitching, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, liver damage, trouble breathing, dizziness, fever, confusion, hallucinations, diuresis, seizures, loss of consciousness & even death.
No: But there are questions about anti-oxidants in it the main idea to me, is that if you are doing things to improve your health like green tea, you are likely to do many things to improve your health.See 1 more doctor answer
Smoking: Doesn't matter what you are smoking. Our lungs were not designed to breath in hot smoke. It all is damaging to the lungs. Ask any severe asthmatic which one they would rather smoke or be around. NEITHER!!
Seems to reduce risk: More research is needed but there is good reason to believe that consuming green tea reduces risk of kidney stones- see http://www. Webmd. Com/kidney-stones/news/20091120/green-tea-may-prevent-kidney-stones previous reports that iced tea (black, not green) increase kidney stones are unsubstantiated- see http://www. Healthnewsreview. Org/2012/08/iced-tea-kidney-stones-and-the-study-that-never-existed/.
Not that I know of: Unless they are testing for caffeine, which would rarely, if ever, be done. However, the label says that the ingredients are "proprietary" which means they don't have to tell you everything that is in it. However, I have never seen any reports of false positives secondary to any kind of tea. In any case, false positives on screening tests can be ruled out with confirmatory tests.
Yes and No: Valerian root tea does have very mild sedative effects. Which makes it a tea to drink in the evening to help with sleep onset in those who need it. The relaxing effect is extremely mild and no where close to the sedating effects of alcohol. Green tea has not been shown to have any sedative effects. In fact it has some caffeine in it, so if anything it would have the opposite effect.
No: Green tea is a beverage with a lot of health benefits it cannot give you a respiratory illness. That is because "colds" are caused by infections with viruses. Hope you feel better soon.
Is it true that green tea overdose can cause persisten (mild)lightheaded all the times? If yes, how to cure it?
Green tea: I would hold off on the green tea for 2-3 weeks, and see if the issue resolves.See 1 more doctor answer
