Steroids pitting edema

Q. what is "pulmonary edema" and what are the risks? my Dr. told me I'm in a risk group for pulmonary edema, he tried to explain what it is but i didn't understand fully...if someone may give me a brief explanation- I'll appreciate it! A. pulmonary edema occurs when, lets say, your heart left ventricle stops working properly and your right ventricle works fine. that means your lungs getting lets presume- 1 liter of blood -but your left ventricle can pump out of it only 990 ml. that means you have high blood pressure in your lungs and fluid comes out of blood vessels and fills your lungs, making it harder and harder breathing.

Other conditions that can cause swelling to one or both legs include:
• Blood clot
• Leg infection
• Venous insufficiency (when the veins in your legs are unable to adequately pump blood back to the heart)
• Varicose veins
• Burns including sunburn
• Insect bite or sting
• Starvation or malnutrition
• Surgery to your leg or foot
Certain medications may also cause your legs to swell:
• Hormones like estrogen (in birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy) and testosterone
• A group of blood pressure lowering drugs called calcium channel blockers (such as nifedipine, amlodipine, diltiazem, felodipine, and verapamil)
• Steroids
• Antidepressants, including MAO inhibitors (such as phenelzine and tranylcypromine) and tricyclics (such as nortriptyline, desipramine, and amitriptyline)

it effected me any time not just when i was having a period even when after i went through the change so i wouldn't put it down to hormone in balance its just something eny one can have it one thing i was put on was HRT but the dr took me back of it he told me you have more chance of getting pulmonay embolisim in the legs i think if you read up the side effects about it this will tell you about the side effects of putting some people on HRT ask another dr ive been on frusamide for yrs you will pass a lot of urine but least you no its working.

The prognosis for nephrotic syndrome under treatment is generally good although this depends on the underlying cause, the age of the patient and their response to treatment. It is usually good in children, because minimal change disease responds very well to steroids and does not cause chronic renal failure . Any relapses that occur become less frequent over time; [52] the opposite occurs with mesangiocapillary glomerulonephritis , in which the kidney fails within three years of the disease developing, making dialysis necessary and subsequent kidney transplant . [52] In addition children under the age of 5 generally have a poorer prognosis than prepubescents, as do adults older than 30 years of age as they have a greater risk of kidney failure. [53]
