Causes Bleeding From The Gums In A Person With A Stroke?
I want to ask this, my distant relative has had a stroke, for the past 6 months, bleeding from the gums has been getting more and more, how come there is more discharge, more and more swelling. you ..
Hello Saputra, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Bloody gum complaints experienced by your father at this time can be caused by several things such as side effects of long-term use of blood thinners, inflammation of the gums, tartar, habit of brushing teeth hard enough, lack of vitamin C and vitamin K, diabetes (diabetes) ), deficiency of blood platelets (tormbocytes) or blood cancer (leukemia).
As for complaints of swollen feet themselves can be caused by several other different diseases such as heart failure, chronic kidney failure, liver failure, impaired protein balance in the body, impaired venous return or lymph vessels.
In order to ascertain what condition your father is currently suffering from, and whether the two complaints are related or not to the stroke he suffers from, it is highly recommended that you bring your father to consult further with a specialist in internal medicine. The doctor will encourage your father to undergo several examinations such as blood tests, heart records and several other examinations in accordance with the doctor's consideration of your father's current condition. It is also possible that your father will be treated together with other specialist doctors to optimize the therapy your father should receive.
For now, you should still invite your father to try to do activities every day, support your father to always try to move his own limbs without the help of others so that the movement function can return to normal as before having a stroke. Keep making sure your father and I consume drugs in accordance with the dosage or rules of use of each drug given by the doctor, do not stop, replace or add drugs at your own discretion. Take control of the doctor in accordance with doctor's advice. Also pay attention to nutrition for your father, give food and drink according to doctor's instructions, while also limit consumption of salty foods or other foods that contain high levels of salt.
I hope this helps.
