Short Description of Edema

Edema refers to swelling that happens when there is too much fluid trapped in the tissues of the body, most notably the skin. 

Symptoms of Edema 

  • Swelling or puffiness of the tissue directly under your skin, especially in your legs or arms
  • Stretched or shiny skin
  • Skin that retains a dimple (pits), after being pressed for several seconds
  • Increased abdominal size

About Edema 

Edema is a condition caused by too much fluid trapped in the tissues of the body. Although any body part can be affected, the condition is more noticeable in the hands, feet, arms, ankles and legs of the patient.  Edema may also be the result of drugs, pregnancy or an underlying health issue such as congestive heart failure, kidney disease or liver cirrhosis.  Reducing the amount of salt intake helps to relieve it. When it is a sign of an underlying disease, the disease itself requires separate treatment in order to get relief. 

Etiology of Edema

Edema happens when small blood vessels in the body known as capillaries leak fluid. The fluid then accumulates in the surrounding tissues leading to swelling.  

Mild cases of edema may be caused by:

  • Sitting or staying in one position for too long may result to symptoms
  • Eating too much salty food
  • Having premenstrual signs and symptoms
  • Being pregnant

Edema may also be a side effect of some medications such as:

  • High blood pressure medications
  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
  • Steroid drugs
  • Estrogens
  • Certain diabetes medications called thiazolidinediones

In certain conditions, however, edema may be a sign of a more serious underlying disease. Several diseases cause edema, including:

Congestive Heart Failure – For a patient with congestive heart failure, one or both the heart’s lower chambers lose their ability to pump blood effectively.  This results to the blood backing up in the legs, ankles and feet, resulting in edema.  Congestive heart failure may also cause swelling in the abdomen. At times, heart failure can also result in fluid collecting in the lungs resulting in pulmonary edema, and can lead to shortness of breath.  Needless to say, heart disease is a risk factor that needs to be addressed early in order to prevent complications like edema. 

Cirrhosis – Fluid may also collect in the abdominal cavity a condition known as ascites and in the legs as a result of liver damage or cirrhosis.

Kidney Disease – A patient with a diseased kidney will have excess fluid and sodium circulating in the system resulting in symptoms. The kind of edema associated with a kidney problem usually happens in the legs and around the eyes.

Kidney Damage – Damage to the minute, filtering blood vessels in the kidneys result in what is called, nephrotic syndrome.  The declining levels of protein (albumin) in the blood lead to fluid accumulation and edema. 

Weakness or Damage to the veins in the legs – For patients suffering from chronic venous insufficiency, the one-way valves in the leg veins are damaged or weakened. This allows blood to collect in the leg veins and result to swelling. A sudden onset of swelling in one leg accompanied by pain in the calf muscle may be due to a blood clot (deep vein thrombosis) in one of the leg veins. This is an emergency condition that requires immediate medical attention. 

Inadequate lymphatic system – The body’s lymphatic system helps clear excess fluid from tissues.  If the system is damaged, for instance by cancer surgery – the lymph nodes and lymph vessels draining a section may not work correctly resulting to edema. 

Severe long-term protein deficiency — When there is an extreme lack of protein in the diet over a prolonged period of time it can lead to fluid accumulation and edema. 

Risk Factors 

Pregnant women retain more sodium and water than usual because of the requirements of the developing fetus and placenta and can increase the risk of developing edema. The risk of edema in the patient may also be  due to certain medications like:

  • High blood pressure medications
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
  • Steroid drugs
  • Estrogens
  • Certain diabetes medications called thiazolidinediones

Patients that suffer from chronic illness like congestive heart failure or kidney disease can also increase the risk of having edema. Surgery may also obstruct a lymph node, leading to swelling on an arm or leg, usually on one side. 

If the condition is left untreated, edema can cause complications such as:

  • Increasingly painful swelling
  • Difficulty walking
  • Stiffness
  • Stretched skin, which can become itchy and uncomfortable
  • Increased risk of infection in the swollen area
  • Scarring between layers of tissue
  • Decreased blood circulation
  • Decreased elasticity of arteries, veins, joints and muscles may cause symptoms
  • Increased risk of skin ulcers

Diagnosis of Edema

The doctor will perform a physical exam and ask questions about your medical history. The information gathered may be enough to determine what causes the symptoms. In some scenarios, x-rays, ultrasound scans, MRI, 2D-eho of the heart, blood tests or urinalysis can lead to a diagnosis. 

Living with Edema

Here are some tips that can help the patient control the swelling:

  • Elevate the legs of the patient when sitting or lying down.
  • If the patient has edema of the legs, wear support stockings. You can buy these at most drugstores. Support stockings put pressure on your legs to keep fluid from collecting in your legs and ankles.
  • Do not allow the patient to sit or stand for long periods of time without moving around.
  • Follow your doctor’s advice about limiting how much salt you eat.
  • Alternative treatment such as sound therapy
