Any cure for swollen legs due to water retention?

Go to doctors – water retention could be a sign of a serious medical condition such as heart, kidney or liver disease so you will need to get treatment for the underlying medical condition
Step up protein intake – eating more protein encourages your body to shed excess fluid
Changes to medication or dosage of that is the cause
Aids such as support stockings
Eat more bananas – they are rich in potassium which is helps to eliminate fluid retention

Add more cabbage, cucumber, parsley and salad leaves to your diet as they are natural diuretecs
Acupuncture has helped some people
Calcium, magnesium, manganese, evening primrose oil and chaste tree
Cut back on dehydrating drinks such as coffee, tea and alcohol
