limited use of salt
The easiest way is to reduce the amount of salt in your life. If there is less salt in the food, then do not eat salt from above. Do not eat more than 2,300 mg of salt in a day.
Avoid outside food and ready to eat products
If you are addicted to outside food then it can increase your problem even more. If you want to stay away from the problem of water retention, then avoid ready-to-it products. They may have high salt content which can enhance your taste but will spoil your health.
If you are having more trouble then you should contact your doctor soon. The doctor will remove the water from the body by giving you a water pill. But you should not do this work by yourself at all.
drink plenty of water to stay hydrated
Actually drinking more water can actually help prevent water retention.
avoid sitting too long
Sitting in the same posture for a long time also causes swelling in the body. Try not to sit for a long time. Stretch the body for a while, move around.
Usually, there is a problem of swelling in the feet due to sitting with the legs hanging down. To remove the water accumulated in the feet, you lie straight on the ground and raise the legs upwards. This will give you relief. Sleeping with two pillows under the feet while sleeping at night will also benefit.
don’t be a doctor yourself
Usually in our country many people start doing the work of doctor by themselves. No one has a cold that everyone starts prescribing medicine from their side. Don’t do that in this case. Do not do it yourself or anyone else but contact the doctor. Water retention is not a big problem, but with a little care, you can get rid of water filled body and swelling.
