Hello! I m an internist from DK. My patient lost about 70 pounds on a low carb high protein diet plus veggies, vitamin and Ca supplement. I guess she was quite tough and consequent. After 6 months, around Xmas she developped severe edema up to lumbar and periorbitally, about 7kg. Her gp gave her 4 days of HCT diuretic and it dissappeared. Same time she stooped the diet. When I saw her a week later, she was completely fine, normal BP, Urine amd all blood tests . Have you seen that before, what do you think is the reason? Greetings Wolfgang, DK I
