I am a 33 year old Type 1 diabetic who was diagnosed at 18.
I never used to have many issues with fluid retention but I am finding that in warm weather or if I am sitting for long hours at my desk I get really swollen ankles…and I don't mean a bit puffy I mean full out swollen where my ankles disappear and my flip flops leave dents in the skin!!
I drink about 2 litres of water a day and never have tea or fizzy drinks so I am not sure why this is only happening in my legs and not elsewhere…
Does anyone else get this and if so what do you do to try avoid this…it's awful when I always have to wear long skirts because I am so embarrassed about my swollen ankles…!!
