Swollen Feet In Diabetics?
Assalammu’alaikum, good evening.Doctor, I want to ask, about what is the cause of the feet of a patient with blood sugar to swell like filled with fluid? Then how to handle it? And what are the side effects of the condition? The person is around 50 years old. Thanks in advance, wassalam.
Good evening Dinanurliani, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The causes of the feet experience swelling quite diverse, such as:
Chronic kidney failure
Hardening of the liver
Lack of blood protein
Impaired lymph fluid flow or reverse blood flow in the legs
To ascertain the main cause of the complaints of swelling, it is advisable to go further to a specialist in internal medicine because the patient has a history of diabetes (high blood sugar). The doctor may suggest that the patient perform several examinations to determine the cause and also what treatment plan will be given according to the underlying cause.
In the meantime, it is strongly recommended to consult a doctor immediately, and it is not advisable to buy any medicines to eliminate the swelling without any clear advice from the doctor.
Regarding side effects / complications that may arise, all return to the underlying cause of the complaint because each cause has different complications.
I hope this helps.
