      Oedema

      Doctor standing holding his stethoscope

      Peripheral Edema, also known as oedema and previously known as dropsy or hydropsy, is swelling of hands, arms, ankles, legs, feet (other areas of the body can also be affected) caused by retention of fluids in the body’s tissues. It is most often linked to issues with the venous or lymphatic systems of the body.

      A significant amount of credible information is widely available throughout the internet, which, if interested, is worth reviewing. Here are some suggested links:

      Medical News Today: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/159111.php

      University of Maryland Medical Centre: http://umm.edu/health/medical/altmed/condition/edema

      Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edema

      If you suspect you may have oedema type symptoms, we recommend that you contact your doctor to confirm which compression level may best suit your needs.

      The wearing of graduated compression socks or stockings (or leg sleeves and/or arm sleeves) is recognised as being an effective method of countering swelling caused by oedema.
