    I suffer from fluid retention. I don't want to give up coffee.

    My weight has a propensity go up and down by 4 or 5 kilograms in one or two weeks. I suffer from fluid retention and I've read this web site:

    Fluid retention | Better Health Channel

    One thing it says under the heading "Self-care options for fluid retention" is "Cut back on dehydrating drinks such as tea, coffee and alcohol." I normally have a few coffees during the day and I'll have tea at night. Should I cut right back on coffee and tea or would it help if I drink at least one litre of water per day? The web site said it actually helps to drink more water as the body doesn't retain fluid when it's properly hydrated.

    I'm in a couple of walking groups so I'm currently walking with them up to 3 times per week. I read that exercise helps with fluid retention.

    Thanks.

    No offense, but this is probably best discussed with your doctor, rather than a forum of coffee enthusiasts...

    Or, just cut it out for a month and see what happens.

    Thanks. I thought there might be some medically qualified coffee lovers here. Previously, my doctor had told me a small number of coffees is good for me. I'll ask him next time I see him if I'm currently drinking too much or not.

    sounds like you're definitely not drinking enough water. 2 litres a day is what most people recommend, and you'll probably want more than that if you are exercising and drinking coffee.

    I saw my doctor this morning. He said coffee is still ok for me to drink. I just need to drink enough water every day as well.
