Since becoming a diebetic i hold so much water and it drives me crazy. I can be up 10 to 15 pounds in water weight over night! It will last a few days or up to a week. Then all of a sudden its gone.. I don't get it. Today my hands even hurt because im swollen. I stay away from salt but sill puff up. Does anybody else have this problem? if so how do i get rid of it faster any clue as to what to do? I have tried everything..

I've been going through the water thing for the last three months.Just my left leg though. Doc put me on diuretics, then doubled it, and it really didn't help. Have kept up the diuretic thing, and in the past couple weeks the swelling has gone down. I'm confused about it. Good luck, just know your not alone.

My bride had that due to her CHF & COPD. The Drs put her on diuretics. She got so bad toward the end of her life that she would get "tanked up" and then would get too dry all in the same day. It was really frustrating.
