If you are taking a diuretic, lay down with your legs elevated after you take it. It will increase blood flow through your kidneys and make it work better. Wearing compression stockings helps also. Go to a NO sodium diet. It's hard but it helps a lot. That means no bread or milk. Fruit generally does not have sodium. Limit fluid intake. You will feel thirsty when you really don't need it and have too much fluid in your body. My doctor limited me to 4 cups of fluid per day. Things like jello count as fluid. You put an ice cube in your mouth to help with the thirst.

I have edema in my legs from a liver condition. I take diuretic (Lasix) and Aldactone to releve the swelling and rid of water retention. I am taking a 20 hour flight in a few days. Should I wear a sock during flight? I also have varicose veins. Should I take Venoruton? Thanks.

My husband had a stroke 6 months ago. His entire life he always had low blood pressure but of course the night of the stroke it was over the top so he has been on Losartan potassium50MG ever since. I monitor his BP & has been fine. Cardiologist says he s fine. My question is, can he stop the blood pressure medicine? Reason is, his legs & feet are swollen beyond belief & he has been dizzy & unbalanced since the stroke. We have tried antibiotics for months, socks, putting legs up, etc. to no avail. Would like to know if maybe the medicine has been the culprit all this time. Thank You
