Hi. Welcome to Healthcaremagic
Edema is leaking of the fluid from blood vessels. The sites of edema vary. It could be legs and feet. It cold
be on abdomen or face.
Why fluids leaks from Blood vessels:
1. Increases Hydrostatic Pressure:
2. Decreases oncotic pressure/decreased proteins
ex. Protein energy malnutrition
The treatment depends on the cause of the edema. The medical science is far advanced to treat edema of any cause.
