  • I'm boarder line diabetic and I retain a lot of fluid so much that I had to get an RX from my dr to reduce it. I like all the items on your list but celery. Thanks emoticon - by 45MARY23
  • i needed this one , because of my eye problem called papillaedema ( swelling of the optic nerves) and lemon water does work, but right now im currently taking Diamox or Acetazolamide to release that fluid.. - by VSOLIS4EVER
