Water pills, also known as diuretics, can help you lose water weight very quickly. However, these pills are not a method of permanent and effective weight loss. They pose some health risks and are not considered a healthy way to achieve weight loss.
According to MayoClinic.com, water pills make your kidneys put an increased amount of sodium into your urine. The sodium takes water with it from your blood, helping you to lose salt and water from your body. This causes a weight loss that is temporary and only lasts until you replenish your body with replacements of water and sodium.
Water pills are typically recommended for kidney disorders or patients with osteoporosis. A doctor may suggest the use of water pills to help relieve tissue swelling, and they may also be used to treat high blood pressure.
Taking water pills can cause increased urination, which can result in dehydration. It can also decrease your levels of potassium and raise your cholesterol levels. Before taking water pills for weight loss, ask your doctor if it is the best choice for your situation.
Water pills are most dangerous when they are used for weight loss purposes, and used without doctor supervision. There are certain times when water pill use is recommended, but these reasons are always medical. For instance, a doctor may prescribe water pills to medicate excessive swelling or edema, high blood pressure, or to remove poisonous toxins from the body.You should not self-medicate with water pills, and you should definitely not use water pills just to lose weight.
Verdict? Better stick to healthy eating and regular physical activities for a healthier weight loss, the side effects are too great to risk.Â MYNEWSHUB.CC
