    Hi
    Just wondering if water tablets from the Doctor help with water retention whilst on the CD as I know the packs have a directic in them. Any thought would be great. Thanks.

    Hi Fluffy

    How are you? How much have you lost now then??

    My CDC said I could go and get some from the chemist (as I retain water around my TOTM) - but so far I have never bothered.

    I thought that because you are not taking in carbs and your glycogen levels become depleted, that you cannot retain water?
    Isn't that why people say about it being water weight that you put on when you start eating properly again?

    If you are taking prescribed diuretics then you need to have your BP checked regularly (recommend at least monthly with SS) with the doctor as he may want to alter your dosage.

    It is not advisable to take OTC (over the counter) water tablets as this can cause a drop in Blood pressure leading to you fainting, and that's never good!

    HTH a bit!

    I don't think that is true, but I may be wrong. Carbs in your glycogen stores do retain more water and initial weight gain going straight from SS to eating will be alot of water, which comes with the carbs/glycolen. something like for every glycolen oz, you retain 2 oz of water, figures most prob wrong, but something like that.
    You can still however during the natural cause of things retain water, lots of people do during the totm and again at other times, not drinking enough also makes the body retain water.

    Thanks Ali , I'll try my doctor if my ankles don't get better over the next couple of weeks. I will have to pop an see him so any way, so I can ask him. I don't think my blood pressure is high, but it may be low, if often used to run low. So he may not give me them. I only have 6 weeks left to do the CD any way, I just wanted slimmer ankles for my hols...

    Hi Bethan - I've suffered water retention for many years, even when slim. Recently tried Aquaban (take for 5 days before TOM). Quite effective and I haven't experienced any side effects, only less fluid retention. Worth a try.
