Diuretic

A diuretic is a substance that removes water from the body by promoting urine formation and the loss of salt (sodium).

Caffeine and alcohol are common diuretics.

Diuretic medicines include furosemide, hydrochlorothiazide, and spironolactone. These medicines may be used to help treat conditions such as heart failure, hypertension, or liver or kidney disease.
