    Full Body Swelling and bloating in summer months?
    roccosbaby posted:
    I live in Michigan where we hardly have one or two months of very hot summer months but this year I came down to middle east to visit my parents for three months and since I have been here I have felt fat and bloated. I have been monitoring my weight and there seems to be no changes except that my body feels heavier, flabbier, and more bloated. Could it be possible that the daily 110-120 temperatures and humidity is causing this?
    georgiagail responded:
    Yes, the temperature and humidity are likely the culprits.
