Hi there,
Enlarged liver could be due to many causes like fatty liver, congested liver etc. To arrive at a diagnosis , please send additional details about the history like any fever, breathlessness, cardiac conditions, palpitations,chronic alcohol intake,history of hepatitis etc. Also results of liver function tests, renal function tests,Total protein, albumin levels etc.
There are broadly 4 causes of bilateral swelling of the feet. They are cardiac causes, renal causes, liver conditions, hypoproteinemia. And in some cases, it is idiopathic, no cause can be found for the bilateral swelling of the feet.
Please get back to me with the above details.
Have a nice day :)
