Will A Sauna Help Me Lose Water Retention Weight
When discontinuing the use of suppository indomethacin after 4 yrs at 200mg/day, will I re-lose my weight and water retention?
Possibly: While I don't know why you were using indomethacin suppositories for 4 years, I would think moving away from that is a good idea. Great! Non-steroidal anti-inflammatories such a indomethacin do cause fluid retention and I think it is very possible you will lose a little weight from fluid losses. I would be surprised if it were more than 2-4 pounds, though. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Dehydration. ..: The scenario suggests she might have significant dehydration with marginally poor renal function; after rehydration with IV, s creatinine will drop and fluid would be distributed into her vascular & interstitial space.

Water weight?: A rapid increase in weight is due to water accumulation. You cannot gain a lb. Of fat in 24 hours, but you can gain a lb. Of water in that time period. If you have no edema and weigh yourself in the morning and find your weight to be increasing, that is the weight of water you are gaining. Likewise, if you lose a lb. Of weight in 24 hours, you are losing water, not fat, weight. I trust this helps. ...Read more

Phenothiazine: This medication is a phenothiazine class antihistaminic antipsychotic medication. Medications of this type have historically been known to cause weight gain by appetite stimulation. Finding data on side effects of this medication proved quite difficult online. There was some information about metabolic syndrome cases but I did not see anything that had to do with edema. Without a formal pdr like print out however I cannot say for sure that at least some of the weight gain does not come from edema. ...Read more
