SCORPIO (Oct. n Nov. Dear Dr. Lamb I am 60 years old and have swelling my fest and angles, also my face, eyelids, hands and other parti. My normal weight is 101 one day and the next day it is 112 or more I feel huge. I have been under a doctor's care, but am frighlcned tecause my eye- lids are still swollen, and as scon as I stop taking water pills, I begin to swell. Would you please discuss edema and whf-t a person can eat to feel comfortable. I Em afraid to drink any water or eat anything at this time. I would certainly appreciate your advice as I must work five days a week in order to live and pay my bilks. Dear Reader There are numerous causes for accumula- tion of fluid, called edema Sometimes it is caused by hor- mones. Fluid may accumulate before the monthly period, and many women have difficulties with this problem in the meno- pausal and post-menopausal periods when ttiey are taking hormones. Heart disease can also cause edema because of poor circula- tion. It can cause fluid to ac- cumulate in the lungs, causing an asthmatic type reaction, sometimes called cardiac asth- ma, or it can cause fluid in the feet, legs, liver and elsewhere. So can kidney disease. The important thing to do is to correct the underlying prob- lem, 11 possible, whether it is hormones, heart, liver, kidney, or otherwise. Obviously, since there are so many causes for edema, its treatment involves a long list of different medicines. Only your doctor, who is totally familiar with your case and understands the causes for your edema, can know which one of these is proper in your case. The diet is important in most of these problems and I would especially want you to know that drinking ordinary water in most instances will not influ- ence your retention of fluid. Rarely the sodium content of city water is too high. If so you buy bottled water, make sure it is distilled water, not mineral water. Your body remains fluid because it retains the sodium that occurs in salt. Distilled water does not contain sodium. Fruits and fruit juices are allowed and usually contain very little sodium. Although some contain some sodium, if they are cooked with- out salt and no salt is added, they can usually be eaten. The same thing applies to rice and most cereals. Of course, you need to avoid products made with salt, like some bakery j products. Sodium occurs in most animal products, includ- ing meat, fish, fowl and dairy products. These have to be eat- en in limited quantities io re- strict the salt intake in the diet. However, if ono overdoes this, he will not be getting adequate protein. For most would suggest more non-animal products, that is, fruits, vege- tables and cereals, and avoiding salt in cooking. This will go a long way toward controlling salt intake. If a more severe re- striction is needed, you should go over it very carefully with your doctor, or a dietician he recommends. Plan repairs, home Improve- ments. You have cooperation and a chance to consolidate yuUr pOsiiiuil. it busy iUicl worthwhile day. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. Discipline that fly-away mood and get your work done first. Some old puzzles you find sudden solutions to in the rush. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 Jan. Yesterday recedes readily into past; a fresh start is avail- able, bypassing old obstacles, Release people from their pled- ges. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Felj. Creativity arises in most areas of your daily living. Inspiration comes from romance and from echoes of past happy incidents. PISCES (Feb. 19-Marcli See what you can work out alone, call in help if you need it. Almost any venture has si- lent partners backing it.

He may gulp enough water to bulge his body like a balloon. Bowhead whales making comeback OTTAWA (CP) Bowhead whales, main prey of the ahal- ing ventures in the 1800s, are making a comeback in the Eight mile flooding spurs parley COALDALE Officials of St. Mary River Irrigation District and the County of Lethbridge will meet at the county office on 13th St. S. at 1 p.m. Tues- day to discuss flooding of Eight Mile Lake, northeast of the city. The county and the irrigation district have an agreement that water problems in fields are the district responsibility, and problems along roads arc the responsibility of the county. Eight Mile Lake, a shallow natural lake that takes irriga- tion runoff, has been flooding on private land, said an SMRID spokesman. The district has asked the federal wildlife service and Ducks Unlimited, a private con- servation group, if they would consider paying farmers in the area to care for ducks that use the lake and vicinity. Eight Mile Lake is too shal- low for recreation use but is a favorite duck hunting habitat. GOREN ON BRIDGE EY CHARLES H. GOREN II Or Tilt Ctitll! TrlSKt] North -South vulnerable East deals.
