Edema/Swelling

Edema is a condition of swelling due to abnormal accumulation of fluids in the cells. It can occur anywhere in the body, however, the common places that edema occurs are face, lower extremities, and abdomen. Abdominal edema can cause ascites and is usually related to liver dysfunction, such as cirrhosis of the liver. The treatment is chosen to promote diuresis and ease urination. Heart, kidney, and lungs are the organs that may be involved.

Avoid: rich foods, salty foods, lamb, stimulating foods, wine, garlic, pepper, shellfish, fatty foods, and greasy foods .
