Complications

Question from Redford, Michigan, USA:

When I walk a lot, my hands get swollen and hurt a little bit. It appears that I am retaining water. Is this a sign of possible problems with my kidneys, etc.?

Answer:

No, I don’t think kidney function plays any role. I don’t have any further idea of what could be the reason for your symptoms.

Please discuss this problem with your physician.
