We decided to dedicate this May to edema. Edema is an important topic because many different factors can contribute to developing it, thus making it a wide, and common problem.

In this article, we will be covering yet another factor of edema – kidney failure.

Lymphatic obstruction or lymphedema is a condition caused by damage or blockage of lymph nodes that results in excess fluid retention in tissues and swelling. Lymphedema develops with abnormal accumulation of lymph and damaged lymphatic system. The fluid then collects in the tissue causing swelling in some parts of the body. Those parts are most commonly legs or arms.
