I just asked my GP about this last week. I take a RX diuretic daily. He said to take two a day when traveling, one in the AM and one in the late afternoon. I never
use salt at home, but on a cruise (or traveling anywhere) salt is used in abundance
On our last cruise I had "cankles" (as my friend calls them-you can't tell your calves from your ankles
) from the second day until the end of the cruise. They were fine in the morning, but by evening I couldn't get into my shoes!
Like several other posters, I drink lots of water, but it just doesn't help all the time.
If your ankles (or other parts!) swell enough to be painful (mine have
) I'd suggest you talk to your GP, too.
