Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry you are not feeling well.
before your period, your body can retain fluid and cause swelling
eating more salt in your diet, eating out, processed foods can contain a lot of salt and cause fluid retention and cause 4 lbs of weight gain in 3 days.
have you been eating more salt recently?
you don't have a uterus, so you don't know when your hormone levels are doing up and down since you don't have a period.
but your estrogen and FSH and LH levels still cycle up and down during the month if you are before your menopause.
you should stop salting everything you eat.
this is causing too much sodium and fluid retention in your body.
your body can only take so much excessive salt intake.
you need to stop using salt
and you need to drink more water and fluids
and your kidneys will naturally get rid of excessive salt in your body.
let me know if you have other questions.
