Avatar n tn The answer is all 3. GP for the small stuff, kidney for the renal problems, and cardiologist for the heart failure. At home he should be drastically limiting salt(sodium), or anything with salt(sodium) added. He should try to stay with fresh meat, vegetables, and fruits, with low sodium breads. EVERYTHING he consumes needs to be low/no sodium. If he finds himself thristy a lot of the time, he could suck on crushed ice. It seems to work better than plain water for quenching thirst.
Avatar n tn I have had water retention problems and been on lasix for over a year. But I had liver failure. They also gave me aldactate at first because it keeps the potassium in body, not in urine. If you take lasix, you have to take pottasium chloride. I think it depends on how much liver damage you have, what would cause the problem, but there are solutions that don't hurt your liver.

Avatar n tn that would signify heart failure. This would indicate a quick rise in water retension would be heart related...a gradual increase that you suggest may not be a heart problem...for some people excessive drinking of water under certain circumstances can be problematic.

Avatar f tn Just wanted to share this with you...one of my problems with hypothyroidism is water retention, despite the 80 ounces of water I drink daily. My doctor suggested I try 16 oz. unflavored Pedialyte mixed with 48 oz. water and drink this mixture two consecutive days weekly. After the first day, I noticed a significant difference! After the second day, I weighed 1.5 lbs. less. Water retention isn't a problem for me anymore!!! Maybe this will help others.

754480 tn?1273608779 Last night we had shrimp for dinner. I knew it would make me retain water, so the scale shows a one pound increase, which to me was surprising because I thought it would be more.
Avatar f tn My rings are really tight, I'm not peeing very often and my feet are swollen as well as ankles. Eating okay today.. already had a big bowl of soup, some dates and a brown rice cake with cream cheese. Working on getting more water in me. ... Not peeing still... swelling more. Went out to dinner with a friend, Thai food. Felt hungry and ate slowly and things were pretty much okay. After I got home I decided to have more soup and a part of a salad roll.

1176470 tn?1263731367 Peed loads yesterday and get on the scales today and am 3lb lighter than yesterday. I was starting to panic and think I was going to have to the extreme way and thankfully the scales were nice this morning.
897400 tn?1303329148 I think all of the sudden weight gain was water. I've lost almost all of it since I stopped my period. But I don't have a great appetite either. It's hard to eat when I don't want meat, and everything I like could cause candida or conflict with LDN. ( Gluten and Dairy ).
