10 Changes in Your Body That Can Reveal a Lot About Your Health


10 Changes in Your Body That Can Reveal a Lot About Your Health

Some health issues can be very sneaky they might seem like something simple and not warn you enough to feel compelled to check it out at least in the early stages. Doctors say that the earlier people find out about problems the easier the treatment will be and in some cases early diagnoses might save your life.

We at Hot Feed 24 believe that it is essential to tell our readers about signs that might be indications of something so serious just in case.

1. A scalloped tongue

A scalloped tongue is a situation where the tongue’s edges look like a pie crust and  it means that the tongue is becoming larger than the lower jaw. Unless you had a jaw trauma this case is caused by swelling. The swelling can be because of a few things and some can be fixed without visiting a doctor like for instance dehydration.

If you are also dealing with other symptoms such as aches cramps, hair loss, low blood pressure and bruising it may be a symptom of a thyroid disorder.

2. Black lines on nails  
Nails can often tell a lot about our health some people have very thick or thin nails but if you notice any change in their structure or color you should get it checked dark vertical lines are one of them and they can be a symptom of melanoma. If you don’t recall hurting your nail or don’t have another clear explanation that's why it may be bleeding or don’t know what caused the dark line it should be checked by a specialist.

3. Darkening and thickening of the skin 
If you notice brown or yellow patches that are swollen and that feel like velvet appear on the areas where your skin folds under the armpits or neck don’t ignore this. It might be a symptom of insulin resistance and you should get this checked out as soon as possible. This can be part of a condition where the body doesn’t respond to insulin the way it should and may cause type 2 diabetes.

4. Pimples on the jawline and chin  
Under the skin we have a lot of tiny glands that generate natural oils to maintain our skin in good condition and these oils move up through the pores. When for some reason these glands make more oil than our skin can deal with the pores get clogged. For women getting pimples along the jawline can be a symptom of a hormonal imbalance when too much of the male hormone, testosterone gets generated it stimulates these oil glands.

5. Thinning eyebrows  
As people age they experience natural hair loss but thinning eyebrows can be a symptom of hypothyroidism a thyroid condition. If the thyroid gland doesn’t work properly it may generate too much or not enough of a particular hormone and both of these conditions cause thinning hair on the body. We lose hair all the time it’s a natural process but new regrowth is supposed to replace it. When hormone generation is unbalanced it affects the developing new hair at its root and the hair that fell out doesn’t get replaced.

6. A pimple that doesn’t heal  
We all get pimples every now and then some of us are more lucky than others but normally pimples are caused by clogged pores. However if you get a small pearly pimple that just doesn’t go away for weeks and easily starts bleeding you have to check it out because it may be a symptom of a basal cell carcinoma. Although it looks scary this type of skin cancer is the least risky it doesn’t spread and can be treated relatively fast especially if it’s diagnosed early.

7. Unusual hair growth for women  
If hair suddenly starts to grow in a male area like above the lips, around the chin or below your belly button it could be a sign of a polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) when ovaries get enlarged because of a hormonal imbalance. Keep in mind that genetics can be a reason as well so check the photos of your relatives first.

8. Finger pain  
Thickened sensitive fingers can be a symptom of lung cancer when lung tumors develop they release some chemicals into the bloodstream that stimulate tissue growth under the fingernail and in the fingertips causing pain. If you deal with thickening and swelling on your fingers check it out it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

9. Yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes  
A yellow color on the skin or the eye whites is a common skin sign for liver problems. The eyes turn yellowish because a chemical called bilirubin accumulates in the blood. You have to visit a doctor as soon as you notice the yellow color since an early diagnosis can stop serious health complications.

10. Dark undereye circles  
Dark undereye circles are the result of lifestyle problems when we don’t get enough sleep have a poor diet or an unhealthy lifestyle the fat tissue around our eyes changes and our skin becomes thinner. These dark spots don’t require medical attention it’s a message for you that you should be taking good care of yourself.
