General Edema / Water Retention Information
Edema, also known as water retention or dropsy, is swelling associated with the accumulation of fluid in spaces between the soft tissues of the body. Edema can affect all parts of the body, but it is seen most commonly in the face, neck, arms, feet, ankles and legs.

There are four forms of edema:

  • Anasarca edema is generalized swelling over the entire body.
  • Dependent edema is swelling in the feet, ankles, legs, face and neck.
  • Periobital edema involves swelling around the eyes.
  • Corneal edema causes swelling in the cornea of the eye.
  • Preeclampsia is a condition that occurs in 5% of pregnant women that results in high blood pressure, edema and protein in the urine.

Other causes of edema include poor diet; drug abuse; over use of laxatives or diuretics; oral contraceptives; poor kidney function; heart problems; protein deficiency; varicose veins; sodium retention; poor magnesium/calcium balance; premenstrual syndrome; pregnancy; or a high carbohydrate diet.
