Hello and welcome,
I am Dr Madhuri a consultant gynecologist and will be helping in your query.
It seems that you are having anemia
. It means that there is low hemoglobin
and low blood proteins. To correct this you will need to take iron and plenty of protein. Eat eggs twice daily [ if you are a vegetarian eat sprouted beans one bowl twice daily]. Soyabeans, and protein supplements
[ protein powders ] mixed with milk are also very useful. Also add a lot of green vegatbles and fruits as well as carrots and beet to improve the hemoglobin. If the swelling is due to low proteins it will improve with this. Addition of B complex vitamins also helps to correct anemia as their deficiency commonly causes anemia.
We also advice a dose of albendazole
to kill worms as they are a common cause of anemia.
Other causes of swelling over body are kidney
problems and hormonal
issues. So get a kidney function test done as well as blood TSH done to rule these out.
Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
Feel free to ask any more questions that you may have.
