With King Charles having just recently taken the throne, he’s now in the public eye more than ever before. As his every move is being watched, there’s one thing about the new King that caught the eye.
King Charles’ red and swollen sausage fingers have the limelight & many have been asking if they’re a cause for concern. A doctor has shared his reasoning for why the new ruler’s hands look like that.
According to Dr David Reiner on TikTok, there’s probably a biological reason for the swelling in the royal’s fingers.
These blood vessels are full of red blood cells and fluids - now there are pressures within the blood vessels that cause fluid to exit them
He said oncotic forces pull this fluid back into the blood vessels in most people, if there’s fluid build-up outside the vessel at all, this is usually returned to the heart via the lymphatic system.
King Charles has massively swollen fingers he says that his lymphatic system might not be working correctly & fluid is getting stuck outside the blood vessels causing extreme swelling in his fingers.
Although there may be many other reasons for the King’s swollen digits, according to this doctor, fluid retention may be the answer.
