How does drinking more water usually help decrease fluid retention or edema when a patient has no fluid restrictions?

Many patients who have edema -- fluid retention -- often reduce their water and fluid intake. But this can compound the problem with edema. Fluid intake increases blood volume and stimulates the kidneys to remove fluid wastes. At the cellular level in tissues, increased fluid volume promotes better circulation, which prompts the cells to increase how they move wastes into the bloodstream for transport to the kidneys for processing.However, each patient must discuss this with their doctor. Some patients do have fluid restrictions depending on that patient's medical conditions. But generally speaking, most people can handle normal fluid intake when they have edema and often see better kidney function and less edema.
