Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Blood Pressure is 100/65
Height / Weight is 1.62cn / 46kg
No, I am not on any other medication.
I have done ECG and Xrays etc on a yearly test, and the doctors are ruling out potential pulmonary hypertension. It appears that idiopathic edema could be a most likely condition.
I would like to know what treatment / surgery / medication / supplements I can take to reduce or treat this?
Also, would there be long term side effects taking Lasix? My doctor is not keen for me to take this as she believes this will cause water loss in the entire body instead of just the legs, which is not ideal.
I will work with you.
By the way, to clarify, my water retention is mainly in the calves and gets worst through the day. Swelling at my feet is not very serious.
My job is desk bound and I do not need to stand or walk too much.
Let me know if you need more clarifications.
Thanks, yes, GTT was done and aldosterone, progesterone tests done. All normal.
I am frustrated as I have done many blood tests and taken different supplements but none work effectively nor found an answer to the cause.
I was hoping that there are stronger supplements that I can use to help with the symptoms. Any recommendations?
