Lymphostasis Prevention

Lymphostasis Prevention

As you know, it is best to prevent the development of the disease, and to prevent its occurrence and the development of unwanted symptoms at the earliest stages.


If edema occurs, it is first necessary to consult a specialist (vascular surgeon or phlebologist) to establish a possible cause that causes this condition.

Most often, edema develops due to lymphovenous insufficiency and is aggravated due to overweight, inadequate water balance and a sedentary lifestyle.

  •  Normalization of body weight affects not only beneficially all organs and organ systems, but also contributes to better drainage function of interstitial fluid and reduce its content in subcutaneous fat.
  • Adequate fluid intake of at least 2-2.5 liters per day during the hot period of time helps to ensure that excess fluid is much better excreted "naturally" and does not linger in organs and tissues.
  • An active lifestyle, walking, swimming improves venous outflow and reduces lymphostasis of the lower extremities.
  • If you need to work for a long time in a sitting position, it is important to observe hygiene of work and rest, take short breaks for yourself. During the break, you need to walk to “disperse” the accumulated blood and interstitial fluid in the lower extremities.
  • Limiting the intake of salt with food also contributes to the fact that excess fluid does not linger in the body.
  • Quitting bad habits (smoking and alcohol abuse) 

Remember that health is in your hands, and disease prevention is the best way to keep it for years to come.
