Dear sir/madam

Welcome to health care magic

There are mainly two reasons that might cause the same symptoms that you have explained
1. If your diet contains high salt and electrolytes and if you are having residual renal disease the that might cause water retention and may have caused edema. For this to happen you should have chronic kidney disease, autonomic neuropathy and history of intake of more Quantity of electrolytes
2. Some of the drugs like steroids, drugs containing heavy metals can cause these type of reactions. I reviewed your current medicines you are taking lot of drugs as per now, So what I suggest is to review with your diabetes Specialist and kidney specialist whether any drugs might be causing now.

Since you are telling that these happens. After taking food so it might be caused due to autonomic neuropathy with increased intake of electrolytes. So consult a neurologist once.

If you have any queries please feel free to ask!
