Moderate Edema

Leg

What is Moderate Edema?

Edema is a buildup of fluid in the body, which can affect different areas of your body and cause swelling.

When you have edema, your lymphatic system doesn’t work properly and causes fluid to build up in the tissue around your organs, which causes swelling.

You may experience swelling in your legs or feet, or even in your hands or arms. It is also possible to develop this condition in your face or neck.

What are the types of Moderate Edema?

There are three types of Moderate Edema:

Generalized Edema

This is most common and affects the entire body, including the face, hands and feet. It can be caused by heart failure, liver disease or kidney failure.

Peripheral Edema

This type of edema occurs in the extremities and is a common side effect of diabetes or elevated blood pressure.

Localized Edema

This type of edema happens in one area of your body and can be caused by an injury or infection near that area (for example, a twisted ankle).

What are the causes of Moderate Edema?

There are several different causes that can lead to moderate edema. Some of these include:

  • Standing for long periods of time, especially on hard surfaces like concrete or tile floors
  • Injury to the area (like a broken bone)
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • A lack of protein in the diet
  • Heart failure
  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease

What are the symptoms of Moderate Edema?

The most common symptoms of moderate edema include:

  • Swelling in one or both legs, ankles or feet (especially after standing for long periods)
  • Ankle swelling that gets worse when you put weight on it
  • Increased sweating at night
  • Feeling like your feet are “full” or swollen all day long

What are the risk factors for Moderate Edema?

The risk factors for moderate edema include:

  • Sitting or remaining in one position for long periods of time
  • Not moving around as much as normal
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Having diabetes or high blood pressure

Recommended Exercise

Leg

What are the exercises for Moderate Edema?

Moderate edema is the swelling of the feet and lower legs, which can be caused by a number of factors. It is important to maintain good circulation in these areas and to avoid injury. Moderate edema can be treated with regular exercise, but it’s important to avoid exercises that involve high impact or deep pressure on your feet.

The following exercises are recommended for moderate edema:

Walking

Walking is an excellent way to help improve circulation throughout your body and reduce swelling in your feet and legs. Make sure you’re wearing comfortable, supportive shoes so you don’t damage your feet further by walking too much or incorrectly.

Swimming

Swimming is another great exercise for improving your circulation and reducing swelling in the body’s extremities. The resistance of the water helps strengthen muscles while increasing blood flow throughout your body.

Yoga

Yoga involves stretching different muscles in order to improve flexibility throughout the body, including joints as well as soft tissue structures like tendons or ligaments that connect muscle groups together within each joint system (e.g., knee).

What are the treatments for Moderate Edema?

Moderate edema is usually caused by the buildup of excess fluid in the tissues. The most common cause is either a decrease in the flow of blood, or an increase in the rate at which blood passes through the kidneys.

The treatments for moderate edema include:

Hydration

If you have edema due to low blood pressure, then you should drink plenty of water and other liquids. This will help your body to flush out any excess fluid that may be causing your symptoms.

Weight loss

If you have edema due to high blood pressure, losing weight can help reduce it. However, this isn’t always practical or possible for everyone.

Medications

There are several medications that can help reduce swelling and improve circulation if you have moderate edema due to low blood pressure or heart failure. Some examples include diuretics, ACE inhibitors and beta blockers.

Leg

What brace is used for Moderate Edema?

Moderate Edema, also known as swelling, is a condition in which fluid builds up in the body. If you have moderate edema, your ankles will swell up and feel tight, and you may have pain.

Lace-up braces can be helpful for people with moderate edema. They work by gently compressing the ankle to encourage blood flow back to your heart and lymph nodes. The compression helps reduce swelling in the lower leg and ankle area.
