Water : Water retention is not a diagnosis, it is a symptom of something else going on. Some of the most common things that can cause water retention if they are not working properly include: heart, liver, kidneys and lymphatics. Other things that cause water retention include certain medications, and physical inactivity. Water retention over a period of years can represent a wide variety of different problems. If your primary care physician evaluates you for water retention and cannot find a cause it is termed "idiopathic edema." the treatment for water retention is to treat the underling medical problem that causes it.

This can cause the thyroid to become enlarged (form a goiter), develop regional growths, or nodules, or make too little thyroid hormone. Once in a while, it can result in too much thyroid hormone. ...Read more
