For the last year or so now I have been experiencing edema in my abdomen, ankles, and sometimes around my face. The edema is sometimes mild and sometimes quite severe. I have gained about 30 pounds mostly in my abdomen and I am suffering from a great deal of fatigue. I have seen specialists of all sorts (heart, kidney, liver) and they have run all the basic tests (blood and basic urine) with no abnormal results except to say I was borderline diabetic and I had a few red blood cells in my urine. The symptoms are quite vague and difficult to deal with, and the weight gain and fatigue are taking a toll on my life. Please help.
