HRT and Fluid Retention

Postby mulegirl » Sun May 25, 2008 10:21 am

I am 57 and recently went on HRT (low dose Prempro) for ALL of the classic menopause symptoms.

My problem now is that I am retaining fluid in my feet and ankles, especially in the hot weather. Doc put me on a diuretic, which helps a little, but don't like taking that much.

Anyone have this same problem...any answers?

I've had the same problem for years and also take diuretics sometimes, but I still swell up with hot weather. I really hate hot weather. :( Drinking lots of water and no caffeine helps too, but only cool weather really helps me.
