    Diuretics are used as a risky but quick method of weight cutting.


    They're illegal because its a dangerous way to lose water weight and can cause liver/heart failure.

    Idk if they can be used as masking agents but then again I don't really have much experience with diuretics. Maybe some Sherbro can elaborate.

    Weight cutting is one function. Ashley Evans-Smith tested positive for diuretics for her short notice fight against Pennington.

    Definitely not imo. BUT if they can be used as masking agents I understand USADAs concern.


    Theres been people from ATT who've been popped in the past for using diuretics but it was solely for weight cutting purposes because 30-40lbs is a MASSIVE amount of weight to lose/cut in a couple of months.

    It masks other PEDs and helps you cut weight and apparently that one helps women stay feminine while taking steroids.

    With how much weight she was cutting, I doubt that she was also using steroids. But, they are a masking agent so she is going to get shit on by a lot of people for this.

    The real question is whether shes using it as masking agent or to cut weight. Is there some ex post test people can do to figure that out?

    sometimes people ask rhetorical questions to start conversations

    you not understanding that?

    She started taking the PED at hand AFTER her fight.

    Masking agent seems very likely.

    Seems to me that you aren't asking questions to start a conversation as much as trying desperately to salvage something so you can make excuses and pretend that it doesn't matter.
    She has cheated multiple times now. Give up. She's a cheater.
