    Hello,
    I am a type 1 diabetic and recently have been experiencing swelling from my ankles to my abdomen. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Since I have had diabetes everything seems to be going wrong I have had this problem for the last year or more I have had 3 ultrasounds done and am due to see a specialist next month.I've been taking charcoal capsules which have helped the stomach problem but my ankles are still swollen even when I put them up when I sit. I put it down to age !! I am also type 1

    My father is pre-diabetic and he has a lot of problems with his left leg swelling up. He had to buy a special bed so he could sleep with it elevated to reduce the swelling.
