Edema Treatment

Overview

Edema is a condition characterized by swelling caused by excess fluid in body tissues. It can affect any part of the body and is often a sign of an underlying medical issue.

Symtoms

Common symptoms of edema include swelling, which may be localized or generalized and often results in puffiness or a feeling of heaviness in the affected area. The skin over the swollen area may appear stretched and shiny.

Causes

Edema can be caused by different factors, including injury or trauma, inflammation, heart failure, kidney disease, liver cirrhosis, certain medications, pregnancy, and prolonged standing or sitting.

Risk Factors

  • Obesity
  • Pregnancy
  • Older age
  • Certain medications (such as steroids or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs)

Prevention

  • Maintain a healthy weight through diet and exercise.
  • Elevate your legs when sitting or lying down to improve circulation.
  • Limit salt intake, as excessive sodium can contribute to fluid retention.
  • Avoid prolonged periods of standing or sitting without movement.
  • Wear compression garments, especially during long periods of travel or standing, to support circulation and reduce swelling.

Treatment
