Why diuretics are banned in sport

February 11 2003 at 04:15PM

Diuretics, the drugs responsible for Australian cricketer Shane Warne's positive dope test, are used to eliminate fluid from the body.

Warne tested positive for hydrochlorothiazide and amiloride, diuretics prescribed to treat high blood pressure, heart failure, diseases of the kidneys and liver and pre-menstrual tension.

They are included on the banned drugs list because they can be misused to lose weight quickly in sports which have weight categories or to increase the rate that urine is produced and eliminated.

Diluting urine makes it more difficult to detect the presence of a prohibited performance-enhancing drug.

The side-effects include dehydration which can lead to fatal kidney and heart failure.
