I have been trying desperatly to lose weight, and a friend suggested a full body cleanse, beginning with a nightly dose of water retention pills,which I have begun to take, in hopes of shedding a few poulds. Will they truely help in this process?
Water pills usually have the following functions:
Controlling high blood pressure (hypertension).
Treating water retention (edema) due to several causes, including congestive heart failure, cirrhosis, kidney failure (renal failure), and certain medications.
As a water pill, works by increasing the amount of salt and water that the kidneys remove from the blood. This extra salt and water is passed out through the urine. This action causes a decrease in blood volume.
Maybe your doc/pharmacist who prescribed the meds would be able guide you better in case water pills helps you in reduction of weight.
Please take care, best wishes!
I asked myheart doctor about doing this because I take Lyica & it makes me swell with water sometimes. His answer was an emphatic NO! This killed his partner. It can mess up your electrolites, & potassium. A good exercise program & eating healthy, & less of what you eat is the only good way to lose weight. Lots of luck...
