Hello. Swelling and fluid retention can be due to various reasons. Since shebis diabetic and hypertensive, it requires proper evaluation. Wait for the test results. Swelling may be due to cardiac or kidney or liver disturbances. In case of necessity the physician will send you to a specialist according to reports.
