D-Mannose is not a Diuretic

Diuretics, in any form, cause the body to lose more water than it normally would, by inhibiting the kidney's ability to absorb sodium. This increases the production of urine (diuresis) which results in less water retained in the body.

Diuretics should be used only under medical supervision and with extreme caution. They are often prescribed by doctors for serious conditions such as high blood pressure and cardiomyopathy. But because they can amplify the effects of other medications, and bring about potentially dangerous electrolyte abnormalities (such as reduced levels of potassium), diuretics must be used with caution. The kidneys are a finely tuned filtering and monitoring organ where the required amount of sodium and potassium is returned to the blood stream so that equilibrium is maintained while waste and excess water filter into the bladder as urine.

A buildup of excess fluids in the body often resolves itself on its own. If it does not see your doctor as the cause needs medical assessment. Diuretics alter the body's electrolyte balance, and levels of important minerals such as magnesium can be lowered. An imbalance of electrolytes may put you at higher risk for heart failure. That is why it is important to monitor sodium, potassium, and magnesium levels when we use diuretics. The doctor is likely to also monitor kidney function and blood pressure.

Dr Ralph Cinque explains:

"A diuretic adds a layer of pharmacological dehydration to whatever condition you started with. It doesn't address the causes of the original condition. It doesn't normalize anything. On the contrary, it adds another abnormality to the one that already exists. It certainly does not cure, fix, or correct anything."
