Food Abstinence In Patients With Swollen Heart Accompanied By Gout?
Hello Iinsmulyadi, Thank you for the question.
Has your father consulted further with a cardiologist or internist? Cardiac swelling is known as cardiomegaly in medical languages. Cardiomegaly can cause a number of symptoms such as shortness of breath, fatigue, dizziness, palpitations, swelling of the feet, and increased body weight. However, this condition does not always cause symptoms. Cardiomegaly can be caused by a number of the following diseases:
hypertension, coronary heart disease, heart valve, cardiomyopathy, anemia, kidney disease and others. To find out the most appropriate treatment is to consult a specialist heart disease for swollen heart problems and internal medicine specialists for gout and cholesterol problems. Further examination by a doctor is needed to find out the cause of cardiomegaly experienced by your father. Treatment that can be given by a doctor varies depending on the cause and severity of the condition that your father is experiencing. By knowing the cause, the doctor can provide treatment for the cause. If not treated properly, this condition can lead to further complications, one of which is heart failure.
High uric acid levels can cause a buildup of uric acid crystals in the joints (causing gout) as well as in the kidneys (causing kidney stones). High uric acid levels can be caused by high intake of foods containing purines. The body will break down purines which then produce uric acid. If the consumption of food contains too much purine, the levels of uric acid in the blood can increase. Uric acid levels can also increase if the body has difficulty removing uric acid (for example, having kidney problems). To prevent further complications from high uric acid levels, sufferers are encouraged to consult further with a specialist in internal medicine so that the doctor can provide the appropriate medication and supervise your father's condition. Likewise regarding high cholesterol levels, treatment should still consult with a doctor because cholesterol treatment for each person cannot be compared.
In the meantime, your father can take the following recommendations:
avoid excessive physical activity at rest by consuming enough nutritious foods including vegetables, fruits, and nuts limiting consumption of red meat, organ meats, seafood limiting consumption of fatty oily foods limiting consumption of foods high in salt and sugar avoiding smoking and consuming alcoholic beverages lose weight if you have excessive weight Hope it helps.
