Hello,
Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
I understand your concern.
Your grandfather needs to be evaluated for the same as edema can indicate kidney problems, cardiac problems or even liver issues.
So, you need to ask them to get an ECG, LFT, and RFT done.
Once you have the reports, kindly share it, and I can give you my opinion.
Regards.
