One should first exclude common causes of water retention, like abnormal kidney function or early heart failure, or low protein levels in the blood. Your doctor will be able to check this with blood tests and a simple physical examination. If no treatable disease is found, he may be able to give you a prescription for a low dose diuretic you can use.
