Hello,

Swollen legs can be caused by many serious conditions-
  • liver disease
  • kidney disease
  • heart disease
With a diabetes and hypertension family history, I would suggest you to consult a doctor and go for tests to check for your heart and kidney functions. These diseases can cause damage to these organs and water pills only help in getting rid of the water without actually healing or controlling the disease.
