Brief Answer:
Investigations needed

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Either high blood pressure or kidney problems lead to such swelling.

I suggest you to get her investigated well with tests like renal function tests, liver function test and blood pressure measurements etc.

Do consult a XXXXXXX medicine specialist for the same.

Dear Dr. Langsjoen: A friend is a past heart attach victim, and has congestive heart failure and high blood pressure. He also needs to lose a lot of weight. His cardiologist has him on maximum strength blood pressure medicine as well as a statin, and he is miserable. He is now taking CoQ10 at my suggestion. I have recommended he stop taking the statin and find another way to lower any imflammation (his doctor has never tested his CRP levels). Are there effective ways to reduce blood pressure in a situation like this without the blood pressure drugs? Are there any other therapies which can improve his status?

My son is 14 years old normally healthy not over weight and was diagnosed last year with high blood pressure the top number runs high but bottom number runs low. He had no problems until last year they also found he has a premature heart beat which they have told me not to worry about well i am worried they have him on Claudine 1mg tablets for blood pressure and it makes him very tired. They have ran all types of test but say they can find no cause for the high number in the blood pressure. I m not happy with this answer i want to know what is causing the blood pressure and premature heart beat when he never had it before last year. Can you help?
