Reduce Fluid Intake

Some people need fluid restriction daily due to certain medical conditions that require reduced fluid intake, such as congestive heart failure, end-stage renal disease, people undergoing dialysis frequently, adrenal insufficiency, hyponatremia, and those on corticosteroids. Excess fluid intake can result in swelling in the hands and ankles with a rapid heartbeat, weight gain, and increased blood pressure. Taking a low sodium diet and recording your fluid intake helps you to avoid taking excess fluid every day.
