Angioedema The Skin Disorder That WeltsAngioedema is a skin condition that involves swelling in both the tissue and mucous membranes. It occurs in much the same way as hives except not on the skin surface. Rather, the welts develop underneath the top layer of skin in the soft tissues. This skin condition typically shows up in the face, feet, hands and genital areas.

Allergies are the leading cause for angioedema. When an allergic reaction occurs certain histamines mix with the blood and then the welts begin to develop. It is not uncommon for the cause of angioedema to not be identified. Many different types of allergic reactions can cause it to occur.

Things that have been known to cause angioedema are allergy shots, cold, sunlight, stress, PMS and pregnancy. It is also possible to inherit this disorder. The type of angioedema that is inherited is a problem in the genes that cause proteins in the blood to function abnormally. Without these proteins working right the immune system is not regulated properly.

What are Diuretics?

The term diuretic refers to any substance that helps to rid the body of excess body fluids and salts through urination. These can take the form of prescription or over-the-counter drugs, homeopathic and herbal remedies or certain foods with diuretic qualities that promote urine formation.

Whatever the source, diuretics help to prevent or treat a number of conditions including fluid retention (edema), high blood pressure, and glaucoma.

How do Diuretics Work?

Diuretics work by making your kidneys excrete more sodium in the urine. The body then tries to balance out this increased amount of sodium concentration, by adding more water to the urine from the blood stream during the process of urine formation.

By expelling the excess water in the urine there is now a decreased amount of fluid flowing through the blood vessels and pressure on the walls of the arteries is reduced.

What are the Benefits of Diuretics?

You’ve probably heard the old song “Breaking Up Is Hard to Do.” Not only does your heart take a beating but so can your self-esteem. Here are some practical ways of rebuilding your self-esteem after a break-up.

Self-esteem is how you think of yourself with respect to those people around you. If you think well about yourself, you can do anything you put your mind to. However, if you have no self-esteem, you’ll be lucky if you can accomplish anything. After a break-up you want to rebuild your self-esteem as quickly as possible.

Any break-up can wreck havoc on how you feel about yourself. It doesn’t matter whether you were the one who broke things off or if the other person did – the pain and sense of defeat can be mind-numbing. But you can’t dwell on what’s happened if you want to move forward.
