Hello Ledya, thank you for using HealthReplies.com.
Heart swelling, also known as cardiomegaly, is a complication of heart disease. At certain sizes, the swollen heart can still function normally, but can reduce the ability of heart function.
Heart swelling is caused by blood clots, high blood pressure, heart valve abnormalities, pregnancy, kidney disorders, alcohol and drugs, HIV infection, thyroid disorders, obesity, old age, and genetics. For some cases, a swollen heart does not cause symptoms and any sign, but cardiomegaly that is not handled properly one day can cause congestive heart failure that has symptoms and signs of tightness, irregular heartbeat, swelling in some parts of the body, heart palpitations, and fatigue.
In some cardiomegaly cases, the size of the heart can be returned to normal. However, in some cases the heart will not deflate back to its original form. Cardiomegaly should be treated as early as possible once symptoms are detected, so that the success rate of treatment can be higher. Treatment is usually aimed at correcting or correcting cardiomegaly. We recommend that you consult yourself to a specialist heart disease so that a thorough examination can be done, such as question and answer, examination of vital signs, physical examination, and additional examinations if necessary such as blood tests, heart records, chest x-ray examination, and ultrasound examination of the heart, so that treatment can be given immediately according to the cause of the swelling of your heart.
As for the things you can do right now are:
- Avoid bad fats and multiply fiber and unsaturated fat intake
- Do regular exercise for at least 30 minutes a day
- Avoid consumption of salt and sodium packed foods
