I am currently struggling with high blood pressure. Of All the blood pressure lowering meds we have tried I am either allergic to it or My legs/feet start swelling. We are out of choices and diuretic meds is the only med we haven’t tried. I am worried about dehydration and compromising my kidneys even more than they already are if I have to go on a diuretic. My j=pouch output is 6~ 8 times per day. I try to keep my fluids up by drinking water but some times if I eat something my pouch doesn’t like I lose a lot of fluid. Anyone out there on a diuretic with a j-pouch and how has it been working out for you? Thanks for any input anyone can provide.
