Bendroflumethiazide helps treat high blood pressure by reducing water retention. This can reduce a person's chances of developing cardiovascular health problems and other hypertension-related illnesses in the future. It can also be used to treat symptoms of heart failure, because it takes pressure off the heart.
Bendroflumethiazide is a thiazide diuretic which acts in the kidneys to increase their ability to remove salts from the blood. This increases the levels of minerals and salts (namely potassium), which causes the excess water in the blood to be drawn out and transferred to the kidneys where it is removed naturally from the body through the urinary tract, causing the patient to urinate more regularly. Reducing the volume of fluid in the blood makes it easier for it to flow through the arteries which decreases the pressure within the blood vessels as well as the heart pumping the blood.
|Medication increases potassium levels||Potassium draws water out of the blood||Excess liquid flows to the kidneys where it is passed in urine||Healthier blood vessels lower pressure on the heart|
