I am 60 years old. I am in excellent health. I just had medical checkup and everything fine except cholesterol reading of 320 despite a healthy diet and exercise. My problem is peripheral edema, spider veins and swollen legs, which is often very painful after standing for a long time. In the past, has spent a long time standing at work. I have good shoes and surgical stockings for help. I am not on any medication for this. I have this problem for over five years now. Please help.
