check ur bp . sometime itw due to high bp too

Subha

reduce salt content in your food

Dr. Payal M

some amount of Edema in the legs is ok
but it would be better if you checked it out with your gynec. your bp, urine proteins need to be ok. meanwhile elevate your legs, avoid lying down on your back.

u need to chk ur bp..i had swelling in legs since 5th months till 10 days post delivery .but my bo was normal. hence not to worry. pls chk ur bp first .if that is fine then just keep ur feet elavated..ur feet shud not b hanging lik while sitting on. a chair it shud touch flat down

Khushbu Menaria

It is important that you have a blood pressure check regularly. High blood pressure can cause fluid retention. Reduce salt intake especially in processed foods hence avoid breads, sauces, pickles and anything packaged.
