Supplements/herbs for lymphedema?


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.

On Wednesday, July 18, 2007, our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Vitamins and Herbal Supplements. Gary Deng, M.D., Ph.D. and moderator Beth Baughman DuPree, M.D., F.A.C.S. answered your questions about how to safely and sensibly incorporate vitamins and supplements into your diet.
