Depends on cause: Usually with sodium restriction and water pills . It's important to investigate why you have water retention and make sure it's not heart failure or some thing serious

Low salt diet: Low salt diet, decreasing fluid intake. Need to find out the cause- kidney disease, heart disease, liver disease, low albumin.
