Hi, welcome to justanswer, there is no need to worry about this.
Our bodies are completely dynamic and the conditions in your body changes from time to time , what you are experiencing is a normal phenomena .
If the changes are within a 25-30% range ,there is no need to worry .
In your case, there is a 14%-18 % changes , so these changes are a normal variation.
You do not need to do anything ,this is normal .
It is always recommendable to have a healthy diet ,rich in fruits ,vegetables and whole grains, avoiding fats and refined sugars. If your doctor approves ,perform some type of light moderate physical activity like walking 2-3 times a week.
