Is the swelling in legs related to kidneys?

I am having problems with my legs swelling, I am taking Bumex and Aldactone trying to keep the fluid down in my legs I have been keeping my legs elevated 4 to 5 hours a day and for about 4 weeks now my legs has a been swollen bad, just saw a urology 3 weeks ago and she said everything looked ok with my kidney she looked at, could there be something else there that she missed, even with the fluid pills not passing as much urine as I usually do, Do you think there is something else going wrong with the kidney?

Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. You have swelling in both legs. It can be due to kidney disease, hypoproteinemia, liver abnormality or cardiac cause like ccf or other. You should go for complete kidney function test, serum protein level and liver function test. If needed go for eco cardiography. It will give you exact diagnosis. Then you should take treatment accordingly.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
