Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 days ago):
My endocrinologist /doctor has my fluid intake limited to 48 ounces of liquids per day (all liquids) because my sodium levels were off due to the drug spironolactone , I was taking 200 mg per day but have cut back to 100 mg per day for the last year.
Also my Crestor dosage is 20 mg per day.
From this study (2 months ago):
I have just started with swelling in my lower leg and ankle it's very painful wondered if it was gout and maybe the raspberry ketones were causing it
From this study (2 months ago):
Noticed a significant drop in lung function and much more mucus to cough up about six months ago. This has made it difficult to cough up. Other conditions are better with medications.
