Oedema can occur due to many different causes such as:

  • Standing for long periods - fluid pools in the lower legs.
  • Heat - during hot weather the body doesn't remove fluid as effectively.
  • Pregnancy - the body can retain extra fluid during pregnancy.
  • Menstrual cycle - fluid retention can occur before a period.

  • Medications - some medications can cause the body to retain fluid
  • Conditions - conditions such as heart failure, kidney disease, lung disease, thyroid problems, arthritis, weakened veins.
