My wife is 36 yr old and for the past 1 and a half yr has been experiencing water retention problem in her complete body.
Tests to check kidney,thyroid,arththiritis(as it is accompanied with pain inthe joints),sodium,urine , 24 hour protein all have been ok.we were then told to consult a endochronologist who gave her diuretics but since they were having no effect so she stopped taking them.
As per endochronologist it happens sometimes when medical science also do not have answers to certain problems but somehow i donot buy this.pl suggest something.
