Bumetanide is a loop diuretic (water pill) that prevents your body from absorbing too much salt, allowing the salt to instead be passed in your urine.

Bumetanide treats fluid retention (edema) in people with congestive heart failure, liver disease, or a kidney disorder such as nephrotic syndrome.

This medications is used most extensively to treat heart failure (congestive). Whether the person has HIV or Aids is irrelevant. Any person, regardless of those factors, can be prescribed this medication if the protocol calls for it.

I wish you well and I wish you peace in your world.
