I have been diagnosed with congestive heart failure and am trying juicing to help lose weight and improve my health. I have problems with edema in the legs and it can get bad in other areas as well. I am concerned about juicing and the addition of more water into my body. The doctor has put me on Lasix to help remove water. The edema can be quite painful and makes my knees ache because of swelling.

Is juicing a problem with CHF? Any guidelines i can/should follow?

Thank you for any input…
