The Truth About Water Pills and Weight Loss
by HCA Virginia

When it comes to weight loss, many people turn to diuretics, or water pills, for quick results. They buy them at the nearest drug store, order them online or in some cases, even take someone else’s prescription.

According to bariatric surgeon, Matthew Brengman, MD, of Advanced Surgical Partners of Virginia and HCA Virginia, diuretics are any type of medication, prescription or over-the-counter, that forces the body to get rid of fluids it wouldn’t otherwise do on its own. Seeing that lower number on the scale from losing water weight is appealing, and that’s what makes them so tempting to people trying to lose a few pounds fast.

But is using a diuretic really the best way... read on as Dr. Brengman helps sort out fact from fiction.
