Edema of the lower leg

Edema is the retention of fluid by the tissues of the body. In practice, most often we come across edema of the legs, which appear in the evening. Shoes can suddenly turn out to be not the size of a small one - on the edge of shoes or shoes swell "rollers". In summer, this happens especially often. Such edemas are called - swelling of hot time or hot climate.

Their cause is an increase in temperature, whichleads to the expansion of blood vessels (primarily arterial and to a lesser extent - venous), and then to an increase in the flow of blood to the legs as to the lowest part of the body. In addition, in the summer we consume more liquid, trying to cool down, and the situation is aggravated. What are the main causes and development of foot swelling?

Edema can change the body weight by 2-3 kg per day. After all, liquid is not only a drink, but also food - vegetables, fruits, soups; all, according to nutritionists, we consume up to 5 liters of liquid per day in the form of drinks and watery food. Half of them may well "settle down" in the form of edema. In addition to visible edema, there are still hidden. The most favorite area of ​​concealed edema is cellulite. A third of all anti-cellulite therapeutic programs are aimed at removing excess moisture from our thighs. According to calculations of cosmetologists, in each hip there can be 1-5 liters of excess fluid (depending on the size of the thigh). A massage helps to get rid of it. Shoes should not rub, otherwise through "rubbed" can penetrate infections and the main causes of many diseases. Ocular syndrome is a likely sign of kidney damage in diabetes mellitus, while immunity decreases. It is advisable to buy shoes in the second half of the day, so that later you will not face unpleasant surprises.

Unwillingness to fight overweight

Thin swelling is less common, since obese people have more subcutaneous fat in the body, which allows the fluid to penetrate more easily from the vessels into the tissues of the body, which forms swelling.

Taking these drugs may causeelectrolytes, a drop in the level of potassium and magnesium (which are already reduced in the summer due to active sweating) and lead to arrhythmia with all the underlying causes and development.

The physiological norm (1.5-2 liters of water, including tea,fruits, etc.) should be consumed in any case. If a person stops drinking enough fluids, the body tries to retain water - as a result, urine becomes more concentrated, which affects the kidneys badly.

Sodium draws water from the cells, which onlystrengthens edema and their development and causes. Therefore, give up the overabundance of salt in the diet, including salted cheeses.
