See GP: It would be good for you to see your GP for an exam and some labs. Swelling can occur for any number of reasons and getting labs to check your kidney function and thyroid status would be a good idea. Are you having joint pains or just general swelling? Give us more information and we can better help you assess what is going on. Avoiding salt would be a good idea in any case.
