Dear Neo
If you are retaining water your hands and feet may swell and if you press on the feet or legs, it will make an indentation which takes quite a while to disappear. If you suspect that you are retaining water and also only urinate twice a day, then you must first consult a medical doctor to see if you are not suffering from kidney disease. Please do not take diuretics without first having a medical examination because if you do have kidney problems then taking diuretics could make you very ill.
Take care
