A typical edema usually occurs related to some abnormality of internal organs such as kidney, heart or liver, but this type of edema occurs without such abnormality.
Idiopathic edema is a disease that the mesh between the blood vessels and the cells becomes larger, leading to the leakage of more fluid from the blood vessels to the cells.
The characteristics of idiopathic edema are:
- The edema is hard and doesn’t become dented when it is pressed.
- The difference of the weight within a day is more than 3 lbs.
- There was mental stress when the edema occurred.
There is no specific medicine for idiopathic edema. It is important to reduce the stress you are holding.
