Patient: Im 13 and i want to drink tea but im afraid it may stop my growing what do i do?



Symptoms: No symptoms

Doctor: Thank you for your question. You need not worry, as the consumption of tea does not stop or slow growth at all. What is important that you do not drink too much tea throughout your day, as it contains caffeine, which can affect your sleep, and irritate your stomach. At your age, two cups of tea should be fine.Thank you for consulting AskTheDoctor.com
