Re: [IPk] Query re mega bloating



Hi Rhoda,

That's what came to my mind as well, but since I'm not a doctor and even if I
was medically qualified couldn't make more than a guess without medical
records and lots more info about you I didn't want to scare you.

Hope all goes well at the GP's and it's just a minor inconvenience for you!

Iain.

Hi Rhoda

The first thing that popped into my head when you mentioned the
bloating in several locations was congestive heart failure. I do hope
that's not what it is, but it should be investigated especially if you
have any of the other symptoms:

A GP may think of CHF for a type 2 more readily than he or she would
look for it in a type 1, but it can happen in type 1s.

Take care
let us know how you get on

Melissa
