    I've recently been diagnosed with edema also. I'm a 40yr old man and I've tried everything you have too and have had no luck. One thing that has helped a lot I've noticed is a magnesium supplement. Try buying magnesium oxide or something similar. Take anywhere from 200-500mg's a day. You'll notice a difference. I'm still trying to find the cause of the edema. They tested my heart, liver, and kidneys and found nothing. Probably weight since I'm heavy. If you find anything else useful, I would love to hear it. Goodluck. ~Devin~
