After a recent change of one of my diuretics, I was told that my diuretics were causing me to be dehydrated. I have labs done and see a doctor every week until the right therapeutic diuretic combination dose is found. Has anyone here experienced similar problems?
The goal is to find a dose that will prevent fluid retention while maintaining a good fluid balance. I am, unfortunately, too familiar with the symptoms of a substantial fluid retention, and hope it will never become a way of life for me again. I wonder which is worse? Being dehydrated or retaining fluids?
How does a long term dehydration affect the kidneys?
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
