Diuretics

Diuretics come in a pill form, as do stimulant laxatives, and they are used to rid the body of fluid. They act on the kidneys to increase the flow of urine. They are NOT intended for weight loss. Actually, it only reduces the amount of water in the body, and water in the body is vital for the appropriate functioning of all systems. Individuals use them as a "quick fix," an attempt to control weight, or to lose weight. However, if diuretics are misused, there is a high risk of developing several serious side effects.
