Hello Erlon,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Swelling around the eyes, shortness of breath, and high blood pressure are indeed one of them can indicate kidney disorders. As is known, the kidney is an important organ function in eliminating toxins from the body. Not only that, the kidneys also have important functions in regulating fluid and electrolyte balance, producing hormones, maintaining blood pressure, and many others. Disorders of the kidney there are many types, can be due to infections, benign or malignant tumors, stones, inflammation, side effects of drugs, to lead to kidney failure. Each can have different symptoms depending on the type and severity. Frequently, kidney disorders can cause swelling in the eyes, shortness of breath, and high blood pressure if the condition is severe enough. Not only that, sufferers often find it difficult to urinate, experience swelling in other bodies, can even become dazed and decreased consciousness.


In addition to kidney problems, it is also possible that your mother's condition occurs due to other causes, such as allergies, heart problems, liver disorders, metabolic disorders, and many other possibilities. Shortness of breath he experienced could also indeed be a sign of heartburn as the doctor said.


Better, if you feel that your mother's condition is quite alarming, check her back to the doctor or a specialist in internal medicine to evaluate the cause of the disease. Follow-up examinations, such as x-rays, laboratories, ultrasound, heart records, renography, etc. may also be a doctor's recommendation if deemed necessary. For now, it's best not to give your mother any medication. Take the following steps to improve his condition:

Remind your mother to eat more fruits and vegetables that are rich in antioxidants. Don't overdo it (if necessary, avoid) consumption of foods that are high in salt, cholesterol, saturated fat, trans fat, preservatives, and flavorings. Stay away from alcohol. Eat a little, but regularly.
Remind your mother to always maintain her ideal weight
Remind your mother to exercise regularly, don't sit too much
If the tightness and swelling are quite disturbing, raise your mother's head and chest while sleeping, for example by using a higher pillow
If there is an illness that your mother is suffering from, remind her to take regular control to see a doctor

Hope this helps ...
