Hello causes of edema may be: 1. Check proteins levels in your body by blood study. 2. If you have sedentary lifestyle you can have pedal edema. 3. If your bloodstudies are fine and your kidney functions are fine you can wear a compressive socks to reduce the edema. 4. Regularly move your ankle and do calf stretches to reduce the edema. Regards.
