Grape juice and ETG: No. ETG is caused by alcohol. Not grapes. It detects ethyl glucuronide (a breakdown product of ethanol, so grape juice should not interfere unless there is some alcohol in it.

I believe you can drink grape juice on Coumadin, (warfarin) but is it safe to drink Welches 100% purple grape juice?

I believe you can drink grape juice on Coumadin, (warfarin) but is it safe to drink Welches 100% purple grape juice?

Grape juice: 100% purple grape juice should be just fine with coumadin (warfarin). The issue is how much vitamin K is in there, and it is fairly low. I always recommend my patients eat a healthy diet, and keep the amount of vitamin K steady day in and out so that their dosing of the coumadin (warfarin) can also be steady. Best wishes to you! ...Read more

Should I drink Gatorade and white grape juice and pretzels and jello for stomach flu?

Should I drink Gatorade and white grape juice and pretzels and jello for stomach flu?

That's fine: Hi. A viral gastroenteritis ("stomach flu") will resolve with tincture of time. You do need to stay well hydrated. Gatorade gives you fluid, electrolytes, and a little sugar (helps prevent catabolism). Jello provides sugar and protein. Grape juice provides fluid and sugar. I've never heard the pretzel thing, but if you're tolerating them, they're OK I guess. Just make sure you stay well hydrated. ...Read more

Is frozen purple grape juice, apple juice and peppermint tea ok to drink for ulcer. Ipeppermint tea seems to calm tummy but some say bad for ulcer?

Is frozen purple grape juice, apple juice and peppermint tea ok to drink for ulcer. Ipeppermint tea seems to calm tummy but some say bad for ulcer?

Probably OK: I see no problem with grape and apple juice, though I strongly recommend organic juices as both conventional grapes and apples are high in pesticides. The only reference I found re: ulcers says it should not be used in stomach ulcers because it lowers esophageal sphincter pressure, but I don't see why that would be bad for an ulcer. Many authorities claim peppermint tea is good for ulcers. ...Read more

Is concord grape juice good for the vagina?

No studies: Within the science of medicine, I am not aware of any studies that would have examined whether grape juice is good for the vagina.

Drank grape juice with iron pill. What's gonna happen?? Will I be sick? I didn't have water!!

Drank grape juice with iron pill. What's gonna happen?? Will I be sick? I didn't have water!!

Interactions: I would have thought that the bit of vitamin c in grape juice would have helped you absorb the iron better, but actually the Phenols in Red or Dark grape juice prevent the absorption of iron. So you will absorb less iron with dark grape juice than with water, but it shouldn't make you sick. ...Read more
