    i wouldnt think aquaban would be allowed on cd to be honest as it is a form of water retention medication.
    i had to have my water retention meds evaluated before i was allowed to start cd and doctor thought it safer to stop my water tablets altogether, unless my lymphodema becomes so bad i cant function without them and even then they will have to be a low dosage.
    it does state that ur doctor needs to monitor and adjust any water retention meds whilst doing cd.

    Apologies for being stupid but why would you take this medication? I've heard of it but don't know what it does :confused:

    Hi folks - I was taking aquaban for about 7 days before my TOTM. I have ALWAYS suffered water retention (fat feet, hands and cankles!) since about age 20 and even when I was a v.slim size 12. It helps release fluid from the body, so is a form of diuretic. I stopped taking it when I started doing SS+. Amazingly, apart from one instance I have had NO water retention whatsoever, even pre TOTM, since starting CD. I am fast becoming convinced that carbs were the cause of my water retention - living without the swelling is sooo liberating - just one nice downside is that my shoes are now too big!! Hope this helps. Tx
