I usually tell my patients it is dangerous to lose their weight suddenly.
What you are having is the impact of losing weight in short time.
Puffiness and swelling is due to water retension and mal dieting.
Constipation also is due to improper poor diet.
Get a balanced diet plan rich in fiber low in sodium high in omega3 and vitamins and potassium.

In my opinion you need to check albumin levels , also do a complete blood count
Take Bran for constipation
, drink lots of water
Take B active in the morning and omega 3 after lunch
In CBC if you have anemia you will need iron supplement , however do NOT take it iron until constipation is resolved

Good Luck

hi
these symptoms are suggestive of hypoproteinemia.
protein loss in urine causes depletion of protein levels in the blood causing water retention.
take protein supplements and diuretics.

HI
THIS IS OCCURING DUE TO SUDDEN GROSS HORMONAL CHANGES INSIDE YOUR BODY.
I GUESS SOMETHING HAS HAD GONE WRONG WITH YOUR DIETING SCHEDULE.

hello there
you may be having low albumin levels in your blood .
this can occur due to disturbances in liver metabolism.
get LFTs checked.
diuretics can help lose the water.
