    Is this a good thing. Is it detoxing or doing something bad to be kidneys? I'm so confused...

    It's really a sudden urge as well which makes it difficult because I need to get to the toilet quick and I'm a slow walker...

    If it's a good thing then I'll get used to it. Anyone else had this problem?

    Moringa oleifera. Does that make a difference? There's no information online that it makes people go toilet a lot. I just want to know if that is a good or bad sign? If your unsure than no worries :)

    Just learnt that the term for this is diuretics. Anyone know if this is a good or bad thing?

    I don't have inflammatory problems etc but do get very frequent infections. Should I be worried about this side effect?

    A diuretic is something that "promotes the production of urine" so it makes sense that you would be urinating much more often while you are using Moringa Oleifera as one of its listed properties is that of a diuretic.

    The problem with diuretics--besides the inconvenience of going to the bathroom all the time--is that they can dehydrate you.

    I was thinking that. I just have to drink more I guess.

    Do diuretics that valuable minerals from the body or do they suck out toxins? Or both?

    Using diuretics can lead to mineral deficiencies if used long term, especially without increasing minerals either through your diet or with supplements.

    Depends on the diuretic. Some cause potassium to build up, so if you eat something with a lot of potassium you could be in trouble, altho probably not as badly as this woman:

    The thing with diuretics is that make you urinate more, even if you drink the same! So take care to drink more water, or you will get more concentrated blood and thus increasing the uric acid, among other problems.
