Edema is an abnormal accumulation of fluid in the interstitium, located beneath the skin and in the cavities of the body. Clinically, edema is manifest as swelling; the amount of interstitial fluid is determined by the balance of fluid homeostasis, and the increased secretion of fluid into the interstitium, or the impaired removal of the fluid can cause edema.

For patients with long-term diabetes, serious hyperglycemia will lead to the renal damage, effecting patent’s glomerular filtration system and reducing the GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate). Day by day, patients’ disease condition will be worse and worse, which is called Diabetic Nephropathy. Lots of protein will also leak with urine, forming proteinuria. For patients, owing to the leakage of protein, more water will enter into tissue space and body cavity, leading to edema.
