Help

I am experiencing severe weight gain as well as severe swelling in my legs and feet all of a sudden. What could this be caused from?

Re: Help

It could be due to many things. You need to speak to a doctor about this. Sorry I can't be more help.

Re: Help

I was diagnosed with stage 4 end-stage renal failure after 4 years of being misdiagnosed. I had gained 90 pounds and looked like I was 9 months pregnant. I had swelling in my abdomen and arms and could barely breathe. I know now to speak up. Ask your doctor to do a complete metabolic profile (CMP). If it is your kidneys, this test will diagnose it.
