Could be Nephrotic syndrome. RFT and urine routine is advised. If edema comes and resolves itself over short periods of time, Allergic angioedema may be considered. IgE levels to be tested.

Along with KFT we must get her thyroid tested

Nephrotic syndrome Needs further investigation and evaluation to conclude and line of treatment.

Thanks Dr A Dutta
