Pitting Oedema

This can be caused by poor circulation, fluid retention, pregnancy, certain medications, steroids and diseases of the heart, liver or kidneys.

Minor pitting oedema can be resolved simply by putting your feet up. More severe cases of pitting oedema may require diuretics to help your body release the fluid, and may even require compression stockings to improve circulation.

Pitting Oedema

This occurs when the feet or ankles become swollen as a result of excess fluid in the tissues.
