Question from Summer: Can any supplements/herbs help someone with lymphedema?
Answers - Gary Deng There are none that have been shown to really help lymphedema. There was a report that selenium may prevent lymphedema, but that was an early stage clinical study and whether that is indeed the case would need to be further investigated and confirmed.

The Ask-the-Expert Online Conference called Vitamins and Herbal Supplements featured Gary Deng, M.D., Ph.D. and moderator Beth Baughman DuPree, M.D., F.A.C.S. answering your questions about how to safely and sensibly incorporate vitamins and supplements into your diet.
