Dear friend, welcome to HCM.
body swelling of the kind mentioned (anasarca
) can be due to many reasons. here low sodium, water retention as well as low proteins
she is old with UTI (urine infection), bed ridden.
many factors will decide how serious she is.
only UTI, anasarca, low sodium are absolutely treatable. she seems to be in renal failure
we should know all the conditions , reports , treatment details to be able to comment . can ask your treating doctors about it.
pari, can you post them?
would be glad to help..
Good luck !
