why does my father’s legs often swell every day is there any connection with high blood pressure?

1 Answer:

Hello sri,


Thank you for the question.

Hypertension (high blood pressure) is actually not directly related to swollen feet. However, hypertension that is not handled properly can make the heart work harder, making it prone to heart swelling or weak heart, which in turn makes blood flow not smooth. This condition can ultimately cause swelling in the sufferer's feet. Not only that, several types of anti-hypertensive treatments also often cause side effects such as swelling in the legs.


In addition, swelling in your father's feet can also occur due to other triggers, such as varicose veins, infections, valve disorders or heart rhythms, kidney disorders, allergies, injuries, liver disorders, electrolyte balance disorders, metabolic disorders, blood vessel disorders, arthritis, etc.


Your father's condition should be examined directly by a doctor or internist. If necessary, your doctor will be able to encourage your father to undergo blood tests, X-rays, ultrasound, or other supporting tests so that the handling of your condition can be done more on target. For now, you can help ease your father's complaints by:

Discipline reminded him to undergo treatment so that his blood pressure is more controlled
Also remind your father to increase exercise, limit consumption of foods containing high salt, and keep your body weight to remain ideal (not overweight)
Position your father's swollen feet higher than your heart
Encourage your father not to smoke, and not to consume any drugs carelessly without doctor's advice

Hope this helps ...
