Default Re: swollen feet

Swollen feet (edema) can be caused by lack of movement, too much sun, dehydration, too much salt, too much alcohol and or coffee. Remember that alcohol and coffee are very dehydrating. Drink plenty of water and beverages such as cranberry juice, try to keep feet up when resting and take frequent walks around the deck. This works well and helps to prevent other problems such as kidney stones and backaches.
