1846 Denmark Cause of death

I have attached a .jpg of a death record. I am interested in the cause of 25 Dec 1846 death as Morten Chr. Rasmussen is only 38. Image 183 #9 sulsted, kaer, Aalborg.

Maybe someone could translate this.

Thank you,
Karen Weiss

I don't understand why you post this under Copenhagen County ?
Aalborg County is in Northern Jutland. And the question is not regionally related anyway.

Having finished my complaint :-) the translation is:

Smallholder in Sulsted, married, born in Tistrup Parish.
38 Years.
Dead from Vatersot.

The term “Vatersot” (water disease) was used for any disease that caused swelling of soft tissues due to the accumulation of excess water. Often hart or kidney related.

Dear Karsten,

I apologize profusely for posting this query in the wrong county of Denmark. I will not do that again.

I thank you for your translation of my ggg grandfather's cause of death. It is very much appreciated!
