    Hello madam.Good evening. Swollen feet have a couple of causes.May I ask if it coincides with any particular time of the day, is she mobile, is she on any medication at the moment. Does she have any associated facial swelling. A few of the causes are heart disease, kidney, liver disease, some high blood pressure medications, inadequate albumin in the body which may be due to malnutrition. thyroid disease, long hours of inactivity. etc. Taking all that into consideration, has she seen a doctor.She can start with that and have an evaluation, have a few examinations and blood tests, imaging done. Please have her see a doctor. It can be something as minor as inactivity, but it can also be a number of sinister things that need evaluation and treatment. All the best and sorry about that.Goid night.
