Swelling (Definition)

Swelling is the enlargement of organs, skin, or other body parts. It is caused by a buildup of fluid in the tissues. The extra fluid can lead to a rapid increase in weight over a short period of time (days to weeks). Swelling can occur all over the body (generalized) or only in one part ...Read more

If I have an inflamed liver because of hepatitis C are there vitamins or some kind if medicine that can reduce the swelling? Its so uncomfortable

Painful hepatomegaly: When the liver inflames, it distends the covering of the liver called the capsule this capsule is invested with nerves that transmit pain when stretched by the enclosed but enlarging liver. Hepatomegaly (big liver) can reflect congestive, infiltrative, toxic, metabolic, infectious causes, to name a few. Eradicating your underlying hepatitis c is key. Liver detoxes, etc. Are a waste of time and $. ...Read more

Ankles been swelling almost everyday. Could I be retaining to much water or to much weight? Should I be taking vitamins? 38yrs old 5/5in 200lbs

Ankles been swelling almost everyday. Could I be retaining to much water or to much weight? Should I be taking vitamins? 38yrs old 5/5in 200lbs

Check with your doc: Ankle swelling may be from another problem such as heart, lung, kidney and others. Edema is too much fluid in your body. Vitamins have not much to do with it, as long as you have a mixed diet. There is no need to spend your $$$ on vitamins.

Check with your doc to be safe. ...Read more

My vitamin d level is 13. Does vit d deficiency cause facial swelling??

My vitamin d level is 13. Does vit d deficiency cause facial swelling??

No: B"sd
No not a reason for facial swelling
Quite low levels very low are common, significance is unclear.
"Correct" level of vitamin D are quite arbitrary - usually given as 30 but as low as 15 may be fine. Some recent studies also suggest higher levels may even be harmful. I would check your calcium and parathyroid hormone levels (PTH) as elevated levels usualy reflect Vit D deficiency. ...Read more

By taking vitamin d should that help relieve the swelling in my arthritic hands?

No, absolutely not: Vit d deficiency can lead to osteoporosis since vit d is needed to absorb calcium from your diet.However, too much vit d can be harmful since it is stored in fatty tissue and can build up over time (not just urinated out like many other vitamins taken in excess quantities).If you have arthritis, be sure to see a board certified rheumatologist for treatment--don't rely on vitamin supplements. ...Read more

Can a vitamin B12 energy booster injection cause swelling of ankles and overall water retention?

Can a vitamin B12 energy booster injection cause swelling of ankles and overall water retention?

Reported but rare: I've given B12 shots to hundreds of patients and have never seen this happen so I was going to say no, but in researching this some sites list "feeling of swelling of the entire body" and "swelling of the ankles or feet" as possible side effects. This is very rare.

My face got swollen after takin vitamin D3 supplement 50000 iu. Then my doctor prescribed alerfin to treat the swelling. Any recommendations pls.

??: Alerfin is a steroid brand name not sold in usa but generic is Betamethasone
it seems highly unlikely that vit d at 5000 iu/day would cause this problem / perhaps it could be an allergy to some component of the vitamin pill or capsule
occasionally soy oil as a carrier could cause this. ...Read more

5 days with black and blue eye. Saw er doc on day 3-4. Does vitamin c help heal faster? Make color/swelling go away faster?

5 days with black and blue eye. Saw er doc on day 3-4. Does vitamin c help heal faster? Make color/swelling go away faster?

Yes, along with...: While I'm unaware of formal research, Vitamin C with bioflavonoids is widely considered to help bruises heal faster. You should also eat fruits, esp. Blueberries and other berries. I also highly recommend Arnica as a cream, as well as internally as homeopathic Arnica 12c 2-3 pellets 2-3x/day (available at health food stores).For more ideas see http://www. Organicnutrition.

My vitamin d level is 12. My face is bloated since a few years. My thryoid, creatinine, cortisol etc are fine. Is the swelling due to my deficiency? I

One way to find out: Low Vit. D causes many imbalances.
Face bloating isn't a classic symptom of low D, but it's possible it's connected. Whether it is or not, it's important to correct this for your overall health. When your D levels normalize you will see if your bloating improves. Most adults need 5-8000 iu of D3/day. Aim for levels of 50-80.

I got a 5 day old black eye. Saw er doc on day 3-4. Still blue and black looking and a bit swelling. Does taking vitamin c good to heal faster?

Not especially: Drinking a glass of orange juice daily and keeping up your fruit intake is enough vitamin c. Since it is a water soluble vitamin, your body will excrete any excess. I am not aware of any data supporting mega vitamin c for this kind of wound healing. May get a little worse before it fully resolves and go through purple to brown to yellow stages. Best of luck! ...Read more

Doctor prescribe chymoral forte, fursultiamine compound, vitamin B1+B6+B12 for thigh swelling 1 month x ray of hip joint and lumbar clear. Effectivens?

Not sure.: As you are far away in a different country, & since practices vary by region, it's hard to guide you. I am not certain of your diagnosis. Chymoral Forte, to my knowledge, is chymotrypsin & trypsin, which are digestive enzymes. Unless there is some nutritional issue leading to swelling (protein deficiency?), I am not sure how the thiamine & vitamin supplements will help. Consider HealthTap Prime. ...Read more

I'm a muslim and I keep fasts in ramadhan, I want to know that how can I reduce my thirst feeling in hot days, is there any vitamin to take for this.

No: Thirst is a natural response to need for liquid -- water being the best. Often you are dehydrated before thirst kicks in. There is not a vitamin that eliminates this vital response. Physiology matters! You could "camel up" by drinking extra water before fasting begins each day, and hope that this will sustain you until your evening meal. ...Read more

I started taking a multi vitamin and I feel like this has helped reduce my PVCS drastically. Is this possible?

Sure: Sometimes different vitamins and even small alterations in electrolytes may be responsible for abnormal heart beats, and as well anxiety can cause them, so by taking the vitamin, you may feel less stressed and also be replacing possible deficiencies in your body. I am glad you feel better, be sure to tell your Doctor all the meds you take, even the over the counter one. ...Read more
