I have swollen feet and started furix dr there anything I can do even heard that there is good and drink lots of water?

No: It's not good to drink lots of water. The furosemide will cause you lose free water and electrolytes (necessary salts) but you'll only be replacing free water - counteracting the medicine and resulting in electrolyte imbalance. Instead, try to eat potassium rich foods - http://www. Health. Gov/dietaryguidelines/dga2005/document/html/appendixb. Htm ...Read more

At her age, she probably has chronic kidney disease (ckd) and hydorchlorothiazie (hctz) diuretics are not able to make her kidneys produce adequate amounts of urine to get rid of her swelling. Edema's other causes are a low Albumin or worsening heart failure. ...Read more

I have CHF and my feet have never swelled but the other day Feet were swollen and I drank warm lemon water and swelling left. What does this mean?

Magic.: Swelling in feet in general is due to retention or overload of sodium - sodium from salt. Not sure how the lemon water fits in here. If you are 38 with heart failure you really need to sit down with your doc and have a comprehensive understanding of the disease and treatment. Can't rely on lemon water curing you in the future. ...Read more

Hi doctor, what could be the cause of feet swollen? Is it that my body is retaining more water? How can this condition be treated? Thanks

Many causes: My specialty is phlebology (varicose veins, blood clots, and lymphatic disorders). Certainly, vein trouble can be a cause for feet swelling and should be considered in the diagnosis. However, there many other causes that should be considered, including heart, lung, kidney, liver, fluid, endocrine, and protein disorders. The best place to start would be to see you primary care doctor. ...Read more

I dropped a metal water bottle filled with ice water on top of my foot. It is swollen and bruised but pain is mild to moderate. Is it broken?

Xray or time: Are the only two ways to be certain of this. An xray can be done to check for any fracture. If you are able to walk and bear weight normally, you could wait and see how things are in several days and seek medical care if you've had no improvement. Most injuries like this are contusions to the soft tissue; ice, elevation, and over the counter pain relievers can help. Good luck! ...Read more

My partner foot is red & swollen with purple patches, yes he had water retention about 2 yrs. No its not going up the leg like cellulitis. Any idea?

Clotting?: It sounds as if your partner needs appropriate compression garments to reduce edema and swelling but this is best for venous stasis and not necessarily for arterial insufficency. I would be concerned about varicose veins as well as a potential blood clot (s). A peripheral pulse exam and possible ultrasound imaging may be necessary to evaluate possible etiologies. ...Read more
