A diuretic is any food or beverage which increases the body’s output of urine. Depending on a person’s health or medical conditions, they may want to avoid diuretics or add them to their diet. Either way, it’s important to know which foods increase urine output and which foods do not.
What about blueberries? Are blueberries a diuretic?
Yes, they are!
Blueberries are known to work as a diuretic, and increase the body’s output of urine. Keep this in mind if you have a medical condition where you should either add diuretics to your diet or avoid them.
When eating blueberries, one should try to keep well hydrated.

I ate blueberries and cottage cheese last night because I try to eat meat only one time a day and I had chicken at a potluck we had a work that day. The next day, I had to keep running to the rest room and I could not figure why and the only thing I did different was ate the blueberries my niece bought for me. I thought I had been eating watermelon the way my body was acting. Awesome. I will have them for dessert tonight
I’ve had a similar result during the last few days. I had about 2 cups of blueberries with yogurt each night around 8-9 p.m. During the night I had to get up about 3-4 times to urinate. I assume it’s the blueberries.
