Could it be heart related?

    When I prepped for colonoskopy/ endoskopy a week ago, I had to fast for 24 hours. I was drinking clear fluids, energy drinks, and veggie bullions for a little salt. Well, you might have done all this yourself.

    I thought it seemed unormal to loose 6 pounds of fluid during this fast. This is how much weight fell off me during this fast. Despite the fluid intake the day before the nurse noted I was dehydrated.

    I know it had to do with something else than what I do/ did. There is some inbalance in my system, I know, this "fast" was just another heads up.

    If anyone here have nursing experience or otherexp. - do you think this could be heart related? Not saying I have any big problems, but if you've seen my previouis post "getting worse", this might be related.

    Anyways, I am just trying to understand since my doc is about as informative as a rock.

    Many hugs,

    Lena

    You mention a possiblity of CFS. Some people with CFS have low blood volume, which means they are basically always dehydrated. I don't know how that would cause you to lose wieght while fasting.

    If you think you are still dehydrated, try eating a small amount of non-iodized salt to see if it helps you maintain fluids.

    Maybe someone elso will have some more helpful information.
