Effects Of Milk Consumption For Bones For Stroke Sufferers?
Is anlene milk good for stroke people, because yesterday my mother drank anlene milk her leg became swollen, my mother had a stroke on the right side
Hello Lisnawaty, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Milk is an excellent source of calcium. Calcium is very necessary for the work of body cells, as well as maintaining healthy bones and teeth. Stroke sufferers also still need calcium from food or drink, one of which is milk. Therefore, milk consumption is still recommended for stroke sufferers. Any brand of milk is fine for stroke sufferers, as long as the milk does not cause allergies.
Consumption of milk is unlikely to cause leg swelling. If the swelling that your mother is experiencing is swelling in her right leg which has become weak / paralyzed from a stroke, then it is likely that the swelling was due to her stroke. Basically, blood circulation in the legs is greatly influenced by foot movements. In stroke patients who experience paralysis in the legs, the movement of the legs is reduced. Blood becomes a lot collected in the blood vessels until finally fluid can leak out of the blood vessels and cause swelling in the leg which is paralyzed.
If this is indeed the case with your mother, then try asking for a referral from her neurologist to a specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation (SpKFR) for physiotherapy on your mother's feet. At home, you can also help move your mother's legs as often as possible so that her blood circulation is smooth. When your mother is sitting or lying down, try to lift her legs higher and not hang them down.
If swelling occurs in both legs, then you should take your mother to an internal medicine doctor for further evaluation. Swelling of the feet can occur due to many things, such as disorders of the heart, kidneys, or disorders of the liver.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
