Bumetanide, Water Pills, Losing Weight, and Steroids

ESPN has reported that a number of NFL players were being suspended as a result of using Bumetanide.  Bumetanide isn’t permitted in the NFL under their steroid policy because it is very often used to mask the use of anabolic steroids.

Here’s the thing with Bumetanide:  It’s a really powerful drug in it’s own right.  It is part of a family of drugs known as “loop diuretics”.  These loop diuretics cause the veins in the kidneys to widen, which causes a drop in blood pressure.  Sometimes, doctors give these drugs to help patients with high blood pressure, kidney disease, and edema.  This is a drug given when other drugs aren’t strong enough, so it’s known as being potent.  So, when you start with the potentially life-altering use of anabolic steroids, then use the Bumetanide to hide it, you’re just creating a witch’s brew in your body.  When you’re young, you don’t feel it as much, but when you’re older, all those things you once did come back to bite you.

Bumetanide comes with it’s own alibi.  Because it’s a “water pill”, you can just say that you’re using it to drop weight, which is what a few of the NFL players have claimed.  SO many people use water pills to drop weight artificially.  Notice I said “drop weight” instead of “drop fat”.  Fat is unaffected by this pill.  If you were fat before taking it, you’ll be fat after taking it.  The only things that change is the water you’re carrying, and thus, the scales.

I think I forgot to say this:  If you’re taking steroids, Bumetanide doesn’t actually “mask” the fact that you’re taking steroids, as it is often claimed.  Technically, all that’s happening is that you’re urinating so much that the sheer volume of urine is diluting the concentration of steroid markers in your urine sample.  These guys are, obviously, told to drink plenty of water and take the water pill, and hopefully, when it comes time to test for steroids, they’ll have some really diluted samples.

There are plenty of over-the-counter “water pills” that people use for all kinds of reasons.  I don’t like most of their reasons, and I don’t like most of the products.  Messing around with your kidneys artificially is an awfully dangerous game.  (Of course, if you’re taking steroids already, taking water pills isn’t that big of a leap!)

Some people take Uva Ursi for their blood pressure.  It is a safe herb, and has diuretic properties.  There are plenty of spices that do the exact same thing, and like uva ursi, they aren’t artificially manipulating the kidneys.

But seriously, if you’re trying to lose weight, don’t opt for “water weight” unless you’re a boxer, wrestler, or mixed martial artist trying to make weight just before a fight.  Incidentally, those guys who try to cut a few pounds before weigh-ins know that it’s all just water weight.  They just put on a special suit to try to induce sweating, and they dehydrate themselves, and get into saunas while riding the stationary bike…. But they know that it’s just a temporary drop, and that after weigh-ins, they’ll likely gain three to eight pounds back again by fight time, (sometimes only a few hours later).  But these guys are elite athletes and a few hours of intense training to drop the last few pounds is not that unusual.  (Just today, one of the fighters at the UFC 90 weigh-ins, Josh Burkman, missed weight by three pounds.  They gave him an hour to cut that weight off.  If they told him, “This has to be done in a healthy way, and it has to be fat and not water”, it would be impossible, of course.  But everyone knows that this is just a water weight thing.)

Many of you do the quick-fix weight loss gimmicks, and then you gain the weight right back again in a week or two.  (One lady told me that she spent a year losing 10 pounds, and then on vacation, she gained it ALL back in one week!  That was not fat weight she lost over that year.  Analyzing her diet, alone, revealed that.)  What you’re usually losing is water weight, or worse yet, muscle.  If you’re not getting enough protein, and you’re exercising, your body can easily start burning muscle for fuel. 

If you need some help losing FAT weight, and you’re not taking steroids and you’re not trying to make weight for a wrestling match an hour later, contact me, and we’ll work on some sold strategies that tend to work every time.

Many thanks for sharing this.

Many thanks for sharing this. It is very useful for us who are in dublin martial arts to maintain our diets.

So once again in my sinus

So once again in my sinus misery, I made my way down to the health food store. The first product I saw was called a 'Neti Pot', which is simply looks exactly like a tiny tea pot. To me, this looked very awkward to use (and silly too). However, right next to this product was a product called the 'Nasaline Nasal Rinsing System'. This was much more to my liking, as it consisted of a giant syringe with a rubber stopper at the end. You simply fill the syringe with saline solution, hold it up against one nostril, and slowly push. I'm sure that the Neti Pot would have worked just fine as well, but the Nasaline system was simply more to my liking.

That's good that these NFL

That's good that these NFL players are being suspended. They all know what the effect is, still they tend to use it.
