    How does Fruselac work?

    Dr. Chirag Bhingradiya MBBS , Pediatrics

    Fruselac works by increasing the rate of urine formation by inhibiting the sodium and potassium reabsorption from the kidney, this causes more frequent urination than normal. The increased flow of urination leads to a decrease in blood volume and the removal of this extra fluid from your body results in a decrease in edema. The decreased blood volume causes relaxation of the walls of blood vessels and this results in a decrease in blood pressure which gives relief from swelling and high blood pressure to the patient.
