What is lymphedema?
Lymphedema is a chronic condition where excess lymphatic fluid collects in the tissue spaces, causing edema. While there is no absolute cure for lymphedema, significant progress has been made in the management of the disease.
Gradient Compression Garments
Gradient compression reduces swelling and helps prevent the pooling of fluid in the venous or lymphatic systems and in the interstitial spaces. Active Life has the expertise and products to help patients get back to living their life to their fullest.
Stages of Lymphedema
Stage 0: Latent
Swelling is not always evident in this stage. The stage may exist for months or years before edema becomes visible.
Stage 1: Mild/Reversible
Edema begins to show in this stage. Pitting may occur. This fluid may subside when the limb is elevated.
Stage 2: Moderate/Spontaneously Irreversible
At stage 2, limb elevation is rarely effective in reducing swelling. Pitting can occur as well as possible fibrosis (hardening).
Stage 3: Severe/Elephantiasis
No pitting will be present in this stage. You may see wart-like growths and fat deposits.
