Patient Followup: Weight Gain From Pioglitazone

Six weeks later, he returns to your office with the complaint that he has gained about 4 pounds of body weight. There are no other complaints.  You examine him and note that he has increased subcutaneous fat in the hip/buttock region, but no pitting edema in the lower extremities. There is no elevation of the jugular venous pulse or audible S3, and the lungs are clear.
