Diuretics

 
Abstract:

This post is also available in: enEnglish slSlovenščina (Slovenian)

This article describes drugs influencing water and electrolyte excretion, called diuretics. Most of them modify the transport of sodium ions in tubular epithelial cells via different mech­anisms. They are the drug of choice for the treatment of hypertension and diseases with concomitant edema, such as congestive heart failure, electrolyte disturbances, kidney dis­eases and liver cirrhosis.
