swelling in leg.
I am on demedes 20mg. twice daily for swelling.(waterpill) I am a diabetic. I had to retired early much to my dismay because of health issues, within the past year. Rhuematoid arthritis, and diabeties. Within the last 2 months I have noticed in the evenings I have a lot more than the usual swelling in both legs. So much so that I can not get my shoe on my one good leg. I do watch all salt intake. I am on a salt subsitute. I don't like it so I do without salt. I mentioned it to my dear Dr. last time I went but it was morn. when I went to see him and the swelling was minimal at the time.(Also, I had taken an extra Demadex water pill) There can be a 10 lb. weigh difference between morn and nite. Any clues? Should I be concerned? Or is this normal for a diabetic? I am a type I diabetic. I did stand on my feet (mostly) for some 30+ years, (hairdresser) so could this be the result? Also, several years ago, I did have to have one leg partially amputated. Am I just worrying about nothing?
