WHat can I do to overcome water retension? I work sitting down for 8 hours a day. (not really any opertunity to walk around). My ankles are swollen at the end of the day. Then there is also menopause and I am not on HT. Is there a natural way of treating the water retension or must I take convensional medication as suggested by my GP? Also my kidneys are not functioning fully anymore, but my GP said it is nothing to worry about yet.

you need to make sure you drink your 2 liters of water daily(slowly increase this if you are not doing so yet). use populus comp from Heel and reneel. this helps improve kidney function.
