Edema with Vitamin C intake

Post Number:#1  Post by rfalk » Mon Apr 24, 2006 4:50 pm

It seems that after I started the Vitamin C program I slowly started to notice water retention around my shins and now some in my hands. I am now taking 2 scoops of the Cardio-C per day along with the other suppliments that I have been taking for years. Is there any correlation? Any help would be appreciated.

There are many reason for edema, sodium imbalance, coq10 deficiency, heart failure, etc. Hopefully this is a coincidence. It is not a common report. I might slowly stop the Cardio-C, and verify that the Edema subsides. The restart Cardio-C and verify it comes back, and let us know.

I don't know - I feel ok - I do take 1 ziac for blood pressure 5mg/6.25mg - I take 300mg or more coq10 - along with a list of other I have been taking for awhile - If it was chf or kidney or liver issue wouldn't I feel bad or something??

Are you avoiding sodium?

Glad to hear about the Coq10. How about unrefined sea salt? A good source of sodium and other minerals. (Elsewhere we've discussed Dr. Brownstein's finding that people on low sodium have an increase risk of heart attack)
