It depends on the cause and the location of edema.
My left leg is always cold and I am always tired. Doctors said I had an edema in my leg because it is swollen. What can i do to get rid of that edema?
Hi and thanks for the query,
Getting rid of the oedema depends on the cause. A careful physical examination and tests are required. Problems with a blood vessel or compression must be carefully considered. A doppler ultrasound of the lower limb and clinical evaluation to exclude swollen lumph nodes or masses that could be compressing lymphatic vessels. Thanks. Consult an internist, Bain LE, MD.
y do I retain water if I'm urinating while taking laxsic
Thanks for writing in.
Lasix is a diuretic, it increases urine formation and works as per its mechanism of action. Taking Lasix will delay the edema formation but will not stop it. You might be having severe edema probably and Lasix is only controlling the edema partially.
Hope this helps.
