Dr. Sharon Orrange - July 18, 2017

Medications are a common offender when it comes to lower extremity edema, either as the cause or as a factor that can make it worse. Swelling in the lower legs from fluid in the tissues—lower extremity edema—is a familiar complaint among patients.

Roni Shye - December 31, 2013

Though it sounds straight out of outer space, these drugs are called incretin mimetics, meaning they mimic the incretin hormones that tell your body to release insulin after eating. See More
