Idiopathic oedema
Idiopathic oedema is a non-inflammatory interstitial oedema seen in fertile women. A hallmark is a daily increase in weight > 1.4 kg from morning until evening due to fluid retention, which shows as facial puffiness in the morning and more often abdominal increase and swollen lower extremities during the day. Patients may be disabled due to accompanying symptoms like headache, dizziness, fatigue, anxiety, and depression. The diagnosis is based on clinical features and exclusion of other causes of oedema. Non-pharmacological interventions and pharmacological therapies are reviewed.
