It was checked at the doctor, handed over many analyzes, did or made uzi kidneys and an abdominal cavity, at me all is excellent or different. Edema is accompanied by dizziness, nausea, up to loss of consciousness (especially at night). At the same time, I gain weight in weight up to 5 kg per day, especially when I am in an upright position. I noticed that all this is intensifying before menstruation. said that you may have idiopathic edema syndrome. Is it true? What it is? The reason for this syndrome? Is it possible to cure it completely? What tests should I take and what to confirm this diagnosis? And for how long can it be cured? Please answer all questions if you can, for me it is very important. Thank you in advance.

In this situation, especially if swellingincrease in the premenstrual period, you should pay close attention to the level of sex hormones and, especially - estrogens. Since with a sharp increase in the level of estrogens in the blood, there may be a delay in sodium ions and water in the body. Therefore, it is necessary to determine the level of these hormones in the blood and to undergo an examination of the endocrinologist-gynecologist.
