Oedema or fluid retention is caused by a buildup of excess liquid resulting in the affected area looking swollen and puffy. Other symptoms can include skin discolouration, aching limbs, weight gain or loss, stiff joints and a higher than normal blood pressure or pulse rate. It can affect anyone at any time in their life. However, women are more commonly affected than men, this is thought to be because the female hormone progesterone can encourage the body to retain fluid. The condition is also more often seen in the elderly population which could be due to a decrease in activity.

Fluid retention can develop for a number of reasons. It can occur as a symptom of an underlying health condition, as a result of an injury or for no known medical reason. People who stand or sit for long periods of time may notice some foot or ankle swelling at the end of the day, this is known as peripheral oedema. This is fairly common, whereas fluid retention symptoms are often persistent and can be found in other parts of the body. Medications that have been known to cause oedema include; hypertension treatment, corticosteroids and the contraceptive pill. Health conditions such as pregnancy, heart failure, liver disease, kidney disease, thyroid disease, chronic lung disease and malnutrition can also result in fluid retention.

Some milder cases of fluid retention can resolve on their own. Making small changes to your lifestyle can help such as; avoiding standing up for too long, raising your legs throughout the day, regularly exercising, eating a healthy low-salt diet and losing weight if you are overweight. Fluid retention symptoms should not be ignored as they may be a result of a more serious underlying health condition. In these cases your doctor may advise treatment in the form of Bendroflumethiazide tablets.

The swollen areas appear due to excess fluid forming in either the blood cells or the bonding tissue around the blood vessels, known as the interstitium. The active ingredient, bendroflumethiazide, falls into the category of medicines known as thiazide diuretics. They work in the kidneys by drawing extra potassium and sodium out of the body’s blood stream. These salts then extract any excess water with them and pass it into the urine where it is expelled from the body. By removing the retained fluid the swollen area reduces in size, usually returning back to it’s normal appearance. Where treatment does not resolve your symptoms, further medical advice should be sought from your doctor.
