Hello, I have had terrible fluid retention (about 10-15 pounds that appeared overnight for the last year and a half.) I’ve had every blood test, stool test imaginable. The basic blood test showed possible dehydration and everything else is fine including kidney function. My diet is caffeine free and full of whole foods. I exercise daily which allows me to sweat out some fluid (Since this fluid retention I sweat excessively and very easily during exercise- the extra layer of fluid makes me feel very hot.) I drink around 3 litres of water per day. I’ve tried to add some pink Himalayan salt to food but this makes the fluid worse. Fluid is sometimes really smooth and other items really puffy suggesting that it’s moving between intracellular and extracellular. I’ve tried drinking more water but I just hold more. If I get hot or sweat slightly I become even puffier! I’m so fed up, please help!
The acute form is more common in children, and usually occurs after recovery from an infection. Frequently the patient has a non-specific viral infection. Although, there are times where acute ITP develops when recovering from a bacterial infection. While adults may also develop acute ITP, the disease occurs more often in gradual form ( chronic ITP). Most adults do not remember whether it had been a viral or bacterial infection. Approximately 90% of ITP patients is younger than 40 years old. Interestingly, the chronic form of ITP affects women more frequently. Read ITP Treatment Methods .

Do you feel depressed? Do you worry a lot? Depression and worrying a lot are just two of the many emotional states which can suck the life force out of you.
3. Poor diet
If you don’t have enough nutrients and calories in your diet, you can experience low energy levels because your body doesn’t have the tools to keep functioning optimally.
4. Lack of Sleep
You need sleep to replenish your energy levels. During sleep, your body shuts down and goes into hibernation mode. It gives your body a rest from all the basic functions you deal with when you’re awake and time to repair. Aim for at least 8 hours of sleep at night.
