Nutritional problems can also cause the amount of protein in the blood (albumin) to become low and that too can contribute to swelling. I'm sure they've checked her thyroid. Low thyroid can cause swelling, weight gain, and dcreased activity. I hope that helps . . .
Late night snacking and poor sleep too can cause weight gain. Polycystic ovary (in females) too causes weight gain, hence has to be ruled out by an ultrasound of abdomen.

My doctor palpitated my abdomen but he said it wasn't consistent with fluid retention, but what else would cause the weight gain? These are perflexing questions causing me a great deal of frustration. Any help before I return to the Gastroenteroligist would be appreciated. Thanks.
Did the doctor say anything to you about your swollen legs? It may be a lymph problem, infection (cellulitis), or fluid retention due to kidney or heart problems. Make sure you take plenty of rests with your legs elevated. Although you have the swelling in the legs, still make sure you do not get dehydrated and drink plenty of water, 2-3 litres is the recommend daily amount.

What a whammy! A miscarriage, and then you GAIN weight? Doesn't it seen like it should go the other way? Well I am very reassured to read these postings. My miscarriage happened January 11, and since then I've picked up a good 7 lbs (only gained 2 in pregnancy). I've always had a "healthy appetite" but have been able to get away with it by running 12+ miles a week. If I gained a pound, I ran a little extra and off it came. Not the case any more!

Well if you have not been over eating or consuming high calories and exercising less or if there is no change in your routine or if there is no new medication that you have started, then you must test for diabetes, hypothyroidism or adrenal gland problems, as a cause for the unexplained weight gain. Cushing’s syndrome should be looked for. The kidney function too should be assessed. Severe anemia and low protein in blood can cause water retention and weight gain.
Hello, From your symptoms of fatigue and tiredness, tingling sensations and weight gain, hypothyroidism should be ruled out. Symptoms of hypothyroidism are fatigue,depression,weight gain,cold intolerance,dry, coarse hair and skin,constipation ,muscle cramps,decreased concentration,vague aches and pains,menstrual disorders,palpitation and swelling of the legs. I feel that you should consult a physician and get yourself and your thyroid hormone levels evaluated.

I'll be 46 at the end of this month & just moved to a new state so I don't have the luxury of knowing any doctors. In the last 1-2 months I suddenly gained 40 + lbs & look pregnant. That seems to be where the weight all is. A urinalysis proved negative for pregnancy on Monday & with my 3 grown kids I did not gain this much weight &/or so fast. I just look pregnant & feel "full - heavy - tired & short of breath" most of the time.
Most frustrating, I've noticed that since I stopped taking both, my weight gain has accelerated. Any ideas as to how long I need to endure this or ideas for correcting my metabolism? Thanks.
I've been having a lot of pain on my right side, front, back and side and the pain takes my breath away. I had CT scans and ultra sound to determine if I had kidney stones. Then they sent me for x-rays with contrast and I was told I had a floating Kidney. The nurse for his office said there was nothing that I could do for the pain. "Just deal with it". Wow how can I when the pain takes my breath away and the pain is so bad that I have to lay down in bed until it goes away.
The other reason for rapid weight gain due to water retention is a kidney problem. Kidney function tests can help determine or rule this out. Profuse vaginal discharge can also be due to non infective cervical lesion such as cervical erosion, chronic cervicitis, mucous polyp and ectropion (cervical glands are exposed to the vagina). The other possibilities are STD like gonorrhea and chlamydia, vaginal infections and prolonged use of tampons etc causing allergic reaction.

Hi, The two main causes of chronic kidney disease are diabetes and high blood pressure. Glomerulonephritis,inherited kidney diseases, congenital conditions and infection may also be responsible. A lot of studies have linked soda to diabetes. Though drinking soda will not directly cause diabetes, it adds extra calories to the diet that may cause weight gain, increasing the risk for developing diabetes.
However with the symptoms you've described it could also be an infection of some sort. Parts of it resemble a UTI or Kidney Infection. Take a pregnancy test with first morning urine. I'd also recommend seeing a doctor.
You mentioned that your dog was given they think that perhaps the high blood values are due to an infection...and not kidney related...? You may want to have his blood values checked again, a week or two after the antibiotics are done, and you have been doing SubQ's. Long story may be able to lower his blood values, and he may be able to live comfortably for months to a year or more. All dogs are different, and respond to treatment

I am almost complete with all the hoops you have to jump through to get bariatric surgery. My blood work indicates a low carbon dioxide level of 19. Should I be concered about this?

After that, I stopped that purina-diet dry food. He didn't regain his weight so I took him to the vet. The vet diagnosed Pika has a kidney failure. Now Pika is on Fortekor 2.5mg per day. The vet said, Pika kidney failure due to old age. Pika is 12 now. All in my mind, it was the PURINA-DIET dry food causing his kidney failure.
usually the next day I have shortness of breath, left chest numbness/pressure, headache, sweating, swelling of hands and feet and a weight gain of about 5 pounds. I am extremely tired and after about 4-5 days all symptoms disappear. Is there a connection between a bladder/kidney infection and the retention of fluid that is directly related to the chest discomfort and shortness of breath? I cannot afford a lot of tests, etc. to find out that it is nothing. I am in my mid-50's.
He has been eating regularly, exactly the same as he always has. Now he is eating extra, trying to gain the weight back on, but he's still losing. The dog was our neighbours dog and they assured us at the time that he had all of his shots. The dog is fine, at the time he was agitated at an incident with another dog and my husband just went to pat his head as he has done may times before.
The kidney function test is easily enough done and then it won't be on your mind. If the weight gain is fluid retention then it may be kidney related. And drink water. Dehydration is something you do have control over and will help protect your kidneys from the toradol. Also nixing the caffeine will help as well.
A year later my thyroid hormones went low and I was put on Levothyroxine. I started to gain a bit of weight even though I was under the impression the Levothyroxine would have made me lose weight. I have now lost weight again and my body mass index is now in the "underweight" category. I don't know what it is I'm doing wrong as I've been eating well and I have cut my activity level down so as not to burn any unnecessary weight off.
Hi....if you need to gain weight, GNC, etc stores have powders that will help you gain weight; I recommend you continue to exercise though because you can't spot gain or spot reduce. I also believe stress is a major weight loss catalyst for some is and always has been for me.
