    Hello doctor, I have been having edema (swelling on my feet) for a while now. I have actually gone for check up both home and abroad. All d test results I hav done as adviced by d doctors all came out normal. Nothing abnormal was found. This swelling increases whenever I sit or stand for a long period of time. I am really concerned because I don't know what to expect when I am pregnant with d condition. please kindly advice. thnk u

    Hello madam. Sorry about that. The edema may be due to posture. When you sit you can put your legs on a stool and avoid standing for a long period. Causes of edema can be heart, liver or kidney diseases. Once the tests are normal I will not be bothered and it should not affect you in pregnancy. All the best madam.

    Thank you doctor. However, my right foot appears swollen all day, all year even when the left foot goes down. I'm just wondering if there could be any other thing responsible for this because a lot of times I can't avoid sitting or standing for a prolonged period of time.

    Ok madam. Did you have an Ultrasound scan done? Any history of parasitic infection? Is it very obvious than the left foot? If these are absent it is normal. No two part of the body is same size. Take care madam.

    Thank you doctor. Yes I had a Doppler scan done, nothing abnormal discovered. As for parasitic infection, I'm not sure what that might mean. When the leg is overstressed, it could appear obviously different in size from the left foot.

    Ok madam. If all is fine with the test then you should not worry. Try to elevate the feet and have a feet soak with epsom salt once in a while. All the best

    Good afternoon madam. Pregnacare is a combination of folic acid and other vitamins, you will not be needing to use the folic acid. All the best.
