Overcoming Body Swelling?
In the afternoon, I want to consult about my mother (52 years old) who has been swollen this week, before it was never like that even though she gained weight. I know my mother often consumes herbs sold by people around my mother’s house, but what I suspect is that the herbal medicine is black and packaged in bottled packaging and without writing the name of the herbal medicine. I want to ask, is the swelling because herbal medicine is often consumed? And how to treat swelling, before I take it to the hospital? Can drinking water help reduce swelling? Thank you for the attention bag
Hello Sofrynta thanks for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Previously, doctors needed more information about the swelling, where was the location of the swelling around the legs, abdomen, or facial area? Do you have a history of heart, kidney, diabetes or other diseases?
Some of the causes of your mother's complaints include:
Disease of the liver or liver (cirrhosis)
Heart disease (such as heart failure)
Kidney disease (chronic kidney failure)
Lack of proteinalbumin (due to nephrotic syndrome or malnutrition)
Edema or swelling in the body can occur due to excessive accumulation of fluid in the body caused by interference from the heart pump, disruption of fluid regulation by the kidneys, lack of protein intake (albumin), liver or liver damage. The excess fluid can be located around the feet and shins, in the abdomen (ascites), or in the lung area, causing shortness of breath.
To determine the exact cause of your disease, it is advisable to consult with a specialist in internal medicine, because the doctor will conduct a physical examination, laboratory tests to determine the function of the heart, liver (liver), kidney, or other tests. Your doctor will also provide appropriate treatment for each of these diseases. If it is proven that there is excess fluid accumulation, your doctor can also advise you to limit your fluids or drink so that not too much, the amount of fluid you can drink can be consulted with your doctor.
You should be advised to consume products or herbs that have been registered by the BPOM, because some of the herbs that circulate may have bad contents or have been mixed with certain medical drugs which are dangerous if consumed in the long run.
