Watery Eyes

Watery Eyes For the past four years I have suffered with very watery eyes when I go out in bright sunshine, even if I wear sunglasses. The same thing happens in a cold wind. I have seen two specialists and an optician, who all say that some people’s eyes just do water when they go out in these conditions. My eyes are healthy otherwise. It is very uncomfortable and embarrassing – can you suggest anything please?

Water Retention

Water Retention I have been suffering from water retention for a long time. I feel as if my whole body is bloated, especially my legs, which are always swollen and blotchy. At night one leg seems to turn black. If I drink water during the night, I end up going to the loo six or seven times. I also find it difficult to lose weight.

White Spots

White Spots I have little white spots on my face. They look like pimples but under the skin and with no 'head'. A cluster first appeared under each eye, along with a few on my forehead. A beautician pricked the spots with a needle and removed them, but they have all reappeared and I now have a lot more. People have suggested that they might be due to static from my glasses, the type of face cream I use or lack of calcium. I don’t eat dairy products as I had my gall bladder removed and am on a virtually fat-free diet, could this be the cause?

Wrinkles

Wrinkles Although I'm a vegetarian, I'm on statin drugs because I had a very high cholesterol level. When I started a year ago, my face was totally unlined. Now my cholesterol level is right down but my cheeks have lost their fullness and wrinkles have set in. Do statins affect collagen? And is there anything you can suggest?
