Hi I’m type 1 diabetic and have CKD stage 1. My kidney function when last checked was absolutely fine - having fasting bloods next week. I’ve recently been getting water retention that’s so bad! Doctors think that it’s due to my kidneys. My whole lower half of my body doubles in size, clothes being too small, can’t wear boots because they don’t do up. The doctor says exercise helps but it actually makes my legs blow up more. I’ve read that lemon water can help with excess fluid. Does anyone know anything else that can help with the CKD and water retention? Wondering if anyone has experienced this too, it would be good to hear from people who have.
