Cardiologist explained danger of edema

Russian cardiologist Sergei Ivanov said that edema may indicate the development of dangerous diseases.

“Edema is the first manifestation of chronic heart failure, so any edema should be taken very seriously,” he told the radio station “Moscow Says”.

At the same time, the specialist noted that edema can be associated with kidney pathology, hormonal and vascular complications.

Ivanov also advised to monitor the level of blood pressure and record its indicators in a personal diary.
