What causes water retention?

Your body is made up of almost 70% water. Water retention however, can be very detrimental to your health. So what causes water retention?

The short answer: Water retention is caused by a build up of excess water in the circulatory system, tissues and body cavities. But what causes the build up? Certain diseases (like heart or kidney failure) and side effects of certain medications could be the culprits. In healthy individuals bad lifestyle choices are more than likely at fault. Examples include lack of physical activity, an unhealthy diet, poor weight control, and even hormonal changes. Water retention can result in discomfort, reduced mobility, a slower metabolism and will ultimately lead to weight gain.
