First of all we have to r/o the cause by h/o by investigation that may local, generalist, be renal, cardiac, pulmonary, anaemia, Thyroid disfunction,there are so many other conditions like circulation hamper, lymphatic obstruction, so that will much better to r/o the cause. And then treatment.mild edema goes by own by raising the edematous part above the heart level.and severe case diuretics are used .
