[Gr. diourein, to urinate + -sis] The secretion and passage of large amounts of urine. Diuresis occurs as a complication of metabolic disorders such as diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus, and hypercalcemia. It also occurs after removal of a urinary obstruction, after childbirth, and after supraventricular tachycardias. Diuretic drugs (such as furosemide) are used to manage conditions marked by fluid overload, e.g., cerebral edema, cirrhosis with ascites, heart failure, and nephrotic syndrome.
