This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Blood clot in the leg vein should be checked first with doppler venous ultrasound.
Next possibility can be due to the kidney disease.
High blood pressure and cholesterol can affect the kidneys.
This should be checked by the blood tests.
Next can be incompetent leg veins.
Superficial veins may not return the blood as fast they used to be before.
This causes leg swelling from blood pooling.
Graduated compression stockings should be helpful exerting 30-40 mm hg pressure.
A strong diuretic like Lasix can be used daily to lower leg edema which also helps with blood pressure as well.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
