YES I had pitting edema for over a year. Very swollen feet, and when you press your finger into the swollen flesh a dent remains for many minutes. Mistakenly, I thought the cause was several long trips I took by air, because at the end of each trip my feet were swollen for weeks after. However, I later discovered that there are two root causes that made me susceptible to the long distance air travel - added sugar in my diet, making me almost diabetic, and a low level of potassium, also caused by a poor diet. A month after I eliminated all added sugar to anything in my diet, and started eating large quantities of high quality leafy greens and a high quality salad every day, my edema had gone.
