Fluid is constantly moving in the body and it is prevented from accumulating within tissue spaces. The lymphatic system is responsible for returning excess interstitial fluid back to the blood. About 90 percent of the fluid that leaves the capillaries returns to the blood while 10 percent becomes interstitial fluid surrounding the tissues. Small protein molecules, such as hemoglobin, can leak out of capillaries and increase the pressure inside the cell, preventing the fluid from flowing back into the capillaries. However, despite the pressure that the fluid exerts on the tissues, fluid tends to accumulate in tissue spaces and cause edema. The fluid is picked up by the lymphatic system and returned to the veins.
In the human body, the lymphatic system is responsible for removing excess fluid from tissue spaces, and this fluid is called lymph. If the lymphatic system is not working properly, interstitial fluid can build up in these tissues. Lymphedema is a serious medical condition. Because of its serious consequences, it is vital to treat this condition immediately.
The lymphatic system drains excess fluid through a drainage process. If this system is compromised, blood-derived fluid can build up in the lymph vessels. This abnormal build-up is known as lymphedema. These tissues can become clogged with protein-rich interstitial fluid if the lymphatic system is damaged. In this condition, fluid may also build up in other parts of the body, causing the tissues to swell and become inflamed.
Fluid that isn’t draining properly from the lymphatic system can back up into the tissue spaces. In such cases, fluid that is protein-rich enters the lymphatic system, causing an abnormal accumulation of protein-rich interstitial fluid. This condition is called lymphedema, and it can lead to serious medical complications. This condition can also lead to inability to function at peak levels.
The lymphatic system drains excess fluid and empties it back into the bloodstream. An excess of protein-rich interstitial liquid can build up when the lymphatic system becomes damaged. This fluid is then called lymphedema and can be dangerous. Ultimately, this condition is caused by an imbalance of the body’s immune system and may even cause the tissue to degenerate. There is no cure for the condition.
The lymphatic system keeps excess fluid from accumulating in the tissue spaces by pumping it back to the blood. This is the main mechanism by which the lymphatic system pumps blood. The immune system is responsible to remove waste material. When the lymphatic system is not functioning properly, the immune system is unable to filter out this fluid, which can lead to other problems. In this condition, the body’s natural defense mechanisms have a way to eliminate the excess.
During the process of regulating the flow of fluid in the body, the lymphatic system serves as a mechanism of drainage. The lymphatic system is responsible for the removal of extravasated fluid. In a healthy person, there are many lymphatic vessels that drain the blood. A damaged or faulty lymphatic system can cause the body to retain this excess fluid and may even damage the internal organs.
The lymphatic system regulates fluid movement within the body. When the system is functioning normally, it allows excess fluid to drain out of the tissues. It prevents liquid from building up in the bloodstream, and maintains the correct pH level of cells. However, if the lymphatic system is damaged, protein-rich interstitial liquid can build up and back into tissue spaces. This is referred to as lymphedema. The excessive accumulation of this fluid can cause serious medical complications.
The lymphatic system is responsible for the drainage of extra fluid. The lymphatic system helps to eliminate these fluids and returns it to the bloodstream. The lymphatic system can become damaged or malfunctioning if it is chronic. This causes the accumulation of protein-rich intrastitial fluid. Moreover, the protein-rich interstitial fluid causes a serious health problem known as lymphedema.
