Re: [IPk] Lack of urine

Hi Cat

You say you can weigh yourself.  When are you suggesting I do this.  I 
always weigh myself first thing in the morning and know I put a lot of 
weight on as the day progresses.  I do not have time of the month problems 
as I'm past retirement age I'm afraid.

Thanks for the info on daily amounts passed.  This is the test they did 
before a few years ago and said I was OK.  I will try it myself.
