Drug Side Effects
Water retention is a common side effect of Thiazolidinediones (TZDs) and it can lead to complications such as swelling, edema, body heaviness, or constant inactivity. Our body’s well-regulated salt balance depends upon the body type and the diet we follow. TZDs can disturb this function and increase the retention of corrosive salt by our kidneys. As a result, our body starts retaining water to keep the salt diluted. The excess water then seeps out of the blood vessels due to excessive pressure on the circulatory system.
If water retention persists, you should consult a doctor for specific advice for your condition.
