1. Dandruff and hair loss
When dandruff is paired with hair loss is a sign of vitamin and nutrient deficiency. The most common is the lack of zinc, iron, and vitamins B2, B3, B6, and B7.
2. Wrinkled hands
Wrinkles that appear from aging are normal. However, when your hands and fingers look more wrinkled and lose elasticity can mean dehydration, problems with the thyroid, or bad blood circulation.
3. White patches on the tongue
The white patches on your tongue might appear because of poor oral hygiene. On the other hand, they might be a sign of oral thrush that people with diabetes often have.
4. Skin rashes
Skin rashes can appear for many reasons. One of them might be infections or touching certain plants. If they get infected can become dangerous for your health.
5. Swollen ankles
Swollen ankles mean you consume too much salt. Also, they can be a sign of bad blood circulation or underactive thyroid glands.
6. Dry eyes
The burning sensation or inflammation of the eye means they are dry. It might be a sign of Sjogren’s syndrome, a disorder of the immune system, which also leads to a dry mouth.
Bloating might be a sign of food sensitivity. You might be allergic to some foods or intolerant, which makes your stomach expand because of the gas released.
If you find unexpected bruises on your body, you might lack vitamins. Also, it can be a sign of blood clotting disease.
9. Constant thirst
Being hydrated is important. However, anything too much is not good. Feeling always thirsty and having frequent urination might be a symptom of prediabetes.
10. Muscle twitches
Muscle twitching can happen during physical activities. However, it could mean stress, lack of sleep, kidney disease, or neurological disorder.
Sometimes chronic snoring can be a sign of OSA (obstructive sleep apnea). You might need a medical device to breathe without problems during the night.
