Laxatives and diuretics

Admin's picture

In this section we discuss laxative abuse.

Please note: If you have a problem with abusing laxatives then please visit your GP, continual laxative abuse can stop your bowel functioning properly and can lead to permanent damage!

This section is to give you a clearer understanding about the function of laxatives. Many people who abuse laxatives do not realize laxatives do NOT help weight loss, the only thing they do is 'help you visit the toilet more often'!
