Doctor reveals the secret of swollen fingers of King Charles

The fingers of King Charles III caught the users of social networking sites in the past period, especially after he appeared extensively after assuming the throne of Britain, succeeding his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

King Charles III also appears to have inherited his mother’s concern for his health problems. Elizabeth’s health has always been the subject of interest in the British press, but now the attention has been drawn to the new king, and her curiously bulging shape has caused curiosity and concern in parallel.

Swollen fingers are something the king has struggled with for years, even jokingly calling them “sausage fingers” in 2012 while on tour in Australia after a long trip.

Causes of swollen fingers of King Charles

And British doctor, Gareth Ney, revealed to the Daily Star the possible health conditions that the new King Charles III may suffer from, saying: There are many health conditions that cause swelling, including water retention or aging.

The doctor said: Edema is a condition in which the body begins to retain fluid in the extremities, usually in the legs and ankles and in the fingers as well, which leads to swelling, and in general, women are more likely to suffer from edema than men because the female hormone, progesterone, enhances this condition.

Older people can get this if they sit for long periods of time, and King Charles has been photographed with swollen hands and feet several times after long periods of flying or traveling to hot countries.

Another reason for this swelling is arthritis, a common condition in people in their 60s, where the fingers usually become stiff, painful and swollen, and although medications can help relieve the pain, the swelling can remain.

Other causes can be a high-salt diet or appear as side effects such as certain medications.
