Hello everyone, 

The diuretic that I am choosing is Potassium-sparing diuretics. Potassium-sparing diuretics reduce fluid levels in our bodies without causing us to lose potassium, which is an important nutrient we need. The other types of diuretics cause us to lose potassium, which can lead to health problems such as arrhythmia. Potassium-sparing diuretics can be prescribed to people who are at risk of low potassium levels, such as people who take other medications that deplete potassium. Potassium-sparing diuretics do not reduce our blood pressure, but the other diuretics do. Your doctor might prescribe another medication with the potassium-sparing diuretic to help lower blood pressure. Potassium-sparing diuretics are drugs that cause the excretion of sodium and water while preventing the loss of potassium in our urine. 

Some of the side effects associated with potassium-sparing diuretics include: Hyperkalemia, nausea and vomiting, abdominal discomfort, headache, drowsiness, confusion, Ataxia, kidney stones, Gynecomastia, impotence, menstral irregularities, hypersensitivity reaction, or hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis. Please let your doctor know if you begin to have any of these side effects.

Potassium-sparing diuretics are used for: Hypertension, congestive heart failure, Hirsutism, Polycystic ovarian syndrome, secondary aldosteronism, Conn’s syndrome, prevention of hypokalemia, or Edematous conditions.

There are very few people who are not able to take these medicines. They should not be taken by anyone who have high levels of potassium in their blood, severe kidney problems, or Addison’s disease. Potassium supplements should not be taken with these medicines. Some salt substitutes that you can buy are high in potassium. These should be avoided if you take a potassium-sparing diuretic.
