I find that drinking tea helps get rid of the excess water. Coffee may help too, but I don't happen to want that much caffeine because it might put my blood pressure up.

- - and does anyone understand why many of us have so much more trouble with salt-related water retention in hot weather than in cold? [she asks as the weather begins to cool for autumn]

She mentioned heart failure, and I know fluid retention is associated. But what about hypertension? I don't think anyone really understands the relationship clearly, do they? I know that increased fluid in the blood puts increased pressure on the blood vessel walls, but I don't understand just what causes the increase in fluid. Why do sodium - and potassium, in many cases -abnormally cause the water to be retained?

It seems to me the restriction on fluid intake might be fairly common for people who retain unusually high amounts of water.

Linda they provided me with a list, so far, of foods that are high in sodium. I see a dietician next week so I will get more information from her. Thank you for the heads up on the fruits.

In a prebariatric program hoping to get approval for weight loss surgery.

Be Blessed!

You really should ask questions. You want to be careful with juicy fruits. My husband is also fluid restricted. He has to count certain foods towards his fluid intake - ie; watermelon as fluid as it has a lot of water in it. He even has to count ice cream as part of his fluid intake. The nurse told us that anything that melts and turns into a liquid is considered a liquid. ie; jello, popsiciles, ice cream, malteds etc.

Didn't they provide you a list of foods to avoid and to eat occasionally?

Just today my CHAMP nurse (heart failure) told me I am to limit my fluid intake. All drinks count, coffee, tea, juice and my beloved water. I can have NO MORE than 64 ounces total. I love water. What am I to do to help with so called hunger or when I am eating something spicy cause I am limited on salt intake too. This truly saddens me.
