And here it is! A plain and simple down to earth explanation, that the man on the street can understand
What are Diuretics and What Do They Do?
- Diuretics aid the elimination of sodium (salt) and water from the body through urine.
- When the kidneys excrete sodium (salt) they excrete water from the
blood at the same time. This process decreases the amount of fluid
flowing through the blood vessels, which reduces pressure on the walls
of the arteries.
What are Diuretics used For?
The value of diuretics lies in treating the build up of excess fluid in
the body that occurs with some medical conditions like:
- Heart Failure
- Kidney diseases
- Liver Cirrhosis
- Water poisoning
What to Avoid when using Natural Diuretics
- Diuretics should not be used as an aid for losing weight.
- People with eating disorders will abuse diuretics, especially people with Bulimia Nervosa with the goal of losing weight.
- Most Physicians will not prescribe these for people with eating disorders due to the side effects.
