What is water retention and what are its main causes?

Water retention, also known as edema, is a common phenomenon characterized by the abnormal accumulation of fluid in body tissues. The causes of water retention can be varied, and often include factors such as hormonal imbalance, a sodium-rich diet, lack of physical activity, certain medical conditions such as heart or kidney failure, as well as the side effects of medications.

How to recognize the symptoms of water retention?

Symptoms of water retention may include swelling of the hands, feet, ankles or face. Other signs include a feeling of heaviness, rapid and unexplained changes in body weight, and reduced joint flexibility. The skin may also show some resistance when pinched.

What are the best practices for preventing water retention?

To prevent water retention, we recommend a balanced diet, low in salt and rich in diuretic foods that promote fluid elimination. Regular physical activity is also crucial to stimulate blood circulation. It is advisable to limit consumption of alcoholic beverages and stay hydrated throughout the day.

What natural treatments are recommended for managing water retention?

Effective natural remedies for water retention include diuretic plants such as dandelion, parsley and nettle. Infusions of these plants can help stimulate diuresis and reduce swelling. Supplements such as magnesium and vitamin B6 can also be beneficial, as they improve fluid balance in the body.

When should I consult a doctor about water retention?

It's crucial to consult a healthcare professional if water retention is accompanied by pain, worsens or is associated with symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest pain or high blood pressure. These signs could indicate more serious underlying conditions requiring immediate medical attention.

What role does diet play in managing water retention?

Proper nutrition plays a crucial role in managing water retention. Reducing salt intake is recommended, as sodium promotes fluid retention in tissues. Adding potassium-rich foods, such as bananas, oranges and spinach, can help balance sodium levels. High-protein foods, such as lean chicken and legumes, are also beneficial as they help maintain osmotic balance and oncotic pressure, thus reducing swelling.

What physical activities are recommended to reduce water retention?

Physical activity is essential to stimulate blood and lymph circulation, helping to reduce water retention. Exercises such as walking, swimming and cycling are particularly effective, as they encourage the movement of fluids in the body without too much stress. Yoga and stretching can also help improve circulation and reduce swelling, particularly in the legs.

How does lifestyle influence water retention?

Lifestyle has a significant impact on water retention. Stress can aggravate water retention by stimulating the release of hormones that retain sodium and water. Insufficient sleep can also contribute to the worsening of the condition, as it disrupts the hormones that regulate body fluids. Adopting a balanced lifestyle with adequate rest periods and stress management techniques such as meditation can therefore help prevent and manage edema.

Are there any drugs that cause water retention?

Certain medications can cause or aggravate water retention. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), blood pressure medications such as calcium channel blockers, and steroids are known to contribute to edema. It's important to consult a healthcare professional to evaluate current medications and adjust treatment if necessary to minimize the effects of fluid retention.

What medical tests can help diagnose the cause of water retention?

To diagnose the underlying cause of water retention, specific medical tests may be required. Blood tests can help assess levels of certain hormones, kidney and liver function, and electrolyte balance. An ultrasound examination of the kidneys, heart or liver may be carried out to check for any abnormalities. In some cases, a cardiac examination such as an echocardiogram may be necessary to assess heart function and detect problems such as heart failure, which can cause significant fluid retention.
