Hello Ervin, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Complaints experienced by your niece can be caused by several possible conditions such as:
Kidney inflammation (GNA)
Consumption of foods that are high in salt is excessive
Impaired lymph fluid flow or reverse blood flow in the legs
Lack of protein
Side effects of certain drugs
Due to the current complaint that has not yet improved and is currently experiencing a new complaint, it is recommended to check the complaint back to the doctor for re-evaluation of your nephew's current condition so that it can be determined what further examination should be done and also what therapy it should be given to your niece.
In the meantime, continue to consume drugs given by doctors who treat your nephew in accordance with his recommendations until there are further recommendations from doctors who visited again. It is also recommended to ensure that your nephew gets a balanced and sufficient nutritious food intake every day, especially protein intake and limit salt intake. Also keep fluid intake (water) at least 2 liters a day.
Encourage your niece to wear a mask while the complaint is still present and not leave the house except to see a doctor, do a good cough ethic and not expel phlegm carelessly. Also pay attention to whether there are certain things that trigger or aggravate complaints such as cold weather, consumption of certain foods / drinks and others, if any, avoid as much as possible.
If worsening complaints arise such as shortness of breath, swelling throughout the body, a decrease in the frequency of BAK, or high fever (body temperature reaches 38 degrees or more), immediately take your niece to the nearest hospital emergency room.
I hope this helps.
