Detailed Answer:
Hi welcome,
This is Dr Sameer cardiologist.
Swelling in feet can be due to some causes. We need to find the cause and treat accordingly.
The causes and the test required are
1) Low protein (albumin) in body - Test to rule out is Total protein and Albumin
2) Heart dysfunction( impaired heart function can cause swelling of feet) - Test is 2D Echo
3) Osteoarthritis (inflammation of joint) - Test is X Ray of knee joint

So please get these tests done for further management.
Thanks and take care
