Blood clots: The nation’s favourite drink could make your blood sticky – increasing risk

Professor Whiteley noted tea – the nation’s favourite brew – contains caffeine, “which actually causes you to lose water”.

Thus, in addition to coffee and alcohol, tea “can make dehydration worse”.

The main indicators of dehydration include:

  • Feeling thirsty
  • Dark yellow or strong-smelling urine
  • Feeling lightheaded
  • A dry mouth.

“Dehydration means your body loses more water than you take in. Without enough water, your body cannot function properly, and you can become unwell,” Professor Whiteley added.
