Health Tip: Why Am I Puffy?

02/09/11

(HealthDay News) -- Edema -- swelling that results from fluid build-up in your tissues -- is most common in the feet, ankles and legs. But it can occur anywhere in the body.

The U.S. National Library of Medicine says common causes for edema include:

  • Consuming too much salt.
  • Getting a sunburn.
  • Having health problems such as cirrhosis, kidney disease or heart failure.
  • Being pregnant.
  • Having lymph node problems.
  • Having an adverse reaction to certain medications.
  • Being on your feet for long periods, especially in warmer weather.
