I have a problem with diabetic water retention in legs causing blisters. I take 160 mg Lassic's per day, and 20 mEq potassium. What do I have to do?

Edema

You seem to have some real problems with either your cardiac or kidney function. See a cardiologist and get an echocardiogram to see if you have a low ejection fraction and evidence of renal disease. You may also need to have your leg veins visualized by a venous doppler study to see if you have varicose veins causing your edema. Another cause of edema is too much water and/ sodium intake.

Dr. Bennett Werner answered:

What are reasons you have swollen legs when the doctor say its not water retention or your heart?

Venous insufficiency

Cardiac
The commonest cause is inadequacy of the tiny valves that in the veins of your lower legs allowing gravity to push fluid into the interstitial spaces of your legs when you're on your feet. Elevation and support stockings can be helpful. Do you leave an indentation in your skin when you press down on it? If not, you may not really have swelling at all. Many people think they do but, not really!

Does januvia cause water retention in three legs?

Trick questions?

Water_retention
we have 2 lungs, one on the right and one on the left. Unless you are referring to the 3 lobes of the lung on the right. (fluid retention) Pleural effusion or pulmonary edema is not an expected effect of Januvia. Lung cancer is claimed, but doubtful from Januvia. Pancreatic-pulmonary fistula can do this & Januvia has been suspected. Common things are common, don't blame Januvia yet & keep looking

I'm on seasonique since I have endo. Been on it for years and my legs are so swollen from water retention. Would it be ok to routinely takewater pill?

No

Before starting a diuretic, you need to be evaluated for other causes: kidney or liver dysfunction, low thyroid, blood clots in the legs (which is a risk for estrogens). Before starting a diuretic for any reason, you need your potassium checked.
