There is a hormone called Vasopressin that is made in the pituitary gland and then released by the hypothalamus. It tells your kidneys to retain water. So when you are dehydrated, your kidneys will retain water to increase the water content in your body. When you have too much water, your kidneys release water and then you pee. Or if you are over hydrated, your kidneys might never retain the water in the first place.

A diuretic effect is any that results in your kidneys not retaining any water. And then there’s only one place for water to go, pee.
