Can Humulin N shots cause swelling of the body?

My whole body starts swelling up after weeks of Humulin N shots starting from the feet and legs. I am very sure this is the cause because the swelling subsides and my body will return to normal if I stop my injections. Please help.

I MYSELF CAN SAY THE SAME. HUMULIN-N HAS SWOLLEN ME UP. I HAVE GAINED OVER 50 LBS. I ASKED MY DOCTOR TO PUT ME BACK ON 70/30 AT MY LAST OFFICE VISIT LAST WEEK.

Please go to see your Doctor about this.  If your blood sugar is high enough to need insulin, then you do need insulin. But there are other types of insulin available.  Maybe you are reacting to Humulin N.
