friday Posted August 19, 2007 Report Share Posted August 19, 2007 I am having problems with hormones , and I was just reading about the subject, and came across this sentence....."Estrogen can also promote sodium (salt) and water retention, increasing blood volume"I was just wondering if anyone had their estrogen levels checked to see if they were low..possibly causing or adding to the low blood volume.Or if possibly adding estrogen could help your blood volume?it's just a shot in the dark but I just saw that it can help with retaining salt and water and was wondering if this information could be of any benefit. i realize hormones are not to be played around with but the connection to blood volume got me, and I recall some women her saying they got POTS after Menopause which would effect the estrogen levels.
