Title: Puffy eyes
Post by: Aaisha.Dar on November 15, 2019, 10:31:37 AM
Hi all,

I have noticed my eyes are extra puffy these past 2 days. I have ruled out sodium because 1: my diet was already a low sodium diet since dialysis and 2: I keep a food diary of what I eat. I am on prednisone 5mg as of this week (monday) I understand there will be some swelling because of the side affects but I noticed the lines under my eyes because how swollen it is. I am not sure what could be causing this. Any ideas would be helpful

It's the predisone; my mom went through the same thing.
