What type of substance is that?
It helps the body get rid of water, so could be used to help with a diet

From Wiki:
Hydrochlorothiazide, abbreviated HCTZ, HCT, or HZT, is a diuretic drug of the thiazide class that acts by inhibiting the kidneys' ability to retain water. This reduces the volume of the blood, decreasing blood return to the heart and thus cardiac output and, by other mechanisms, is believed to lower peripheral vascular resistance.[2] Hydrochlorothiazide is a calcium-sparing diuretic, meaning it can help the body get rid of excess water while still keeping calcium
Just read this on Twitter and was coming on here to post it.

Very ironic considering that this is the 2nd person from #TMT caught taking illegal substances.
