Water Retention

I think I have water retention. I am in my 40''s not on any contraceptive, slim, fairly active. I find that my feet are often swollen, especially after going to gym. I can''t seem to put my sandals on after going to gym. I have no health problems that I am aware of. I am not on any medication. I drink about a litre and a half of liquids a day. I do not eat a lot of salt. During my pregnancy''s(15yrs ago) I also retained water. My legs, ankles and feet were extremly swollen. Should I be concerned about this?

Hi Lili
I think you should ask your doctor to check your kidney function, thyroid and your heart as heart failure, thyroid hormone imbalances and some kidney diseases like nephrotic syndrome can cause swollen feet.
