Green Tea for Jaundice/Hepatitis

by Misskhan
(Pakistan)

I am Pakistani I want to know whether jaundice/hepatitis or stomatch disturbed patients can take green tea for weight loss and is it harmfull for them or not?


I am not fat but my belly is increased 2-3 inches and I want to get rid from it.

I have piles problem that's why my stomach sometimes distrubed. Some months ago I have also been a patient of jaundice now it is cured.

I wonder if you could reply promptly so I would be able to use it.

Thanks.

Answer:

The scientific evidence is rather mixed for your case.

Green tea can cause upset stomach, see article below...

But can be good for liver, which is relevant for jaundice and hepatitis.

The best thing is to consult your doctor, or drink a bit and watch carefully for any reaction, especially for your stomach.

I hope this helps.
