Causes Of Swelling In The Ankles?
Afternoon HealthReplies.com, I would like to ask, how come my father’s feet are swollen downwards, huh, even though he is a diligent exercise (walking training), his hands used to be swollen from the palms to his fingers, but because they are often practiced now they are not anymore. guess why huh? thanks.
Swollen feet have many causes. Among them are sitting too much, hanging legs for too long, staying still for too long, or standing too long. However, swollen feet can also be caused by other things, such as infection, heart failure, liver problems, kidney problems, lymph vessel disorders, drug side effects, injury, protein deficiency, or blood vessel disorders. In women, swelling can also be caused by pregnancy and hormonal influences, for example during menstruation.
Because the cause is quite extensive and considering your father had a stroke, you should take your father to the doctor who treats your father to make sure that the swelling in the leg is not caused by something serious, such as heart failure or kidney problems. If there are no other causes, you can try by:
Lying with your feet higher than your body Reduce your salt intake Avoid standing or sitting with your legs hanging over Avoid wearing pants that are too tight, especially on your thighs Do light exercise using your legs
