The human body has been evolving and developing for thousands of years. These are the most complex machines on this planet and work seamlessly, provided we take care of them and pay attention to the signs that indicate something is wrong.
Here are five alarms that our body likes to send us when something is wrong:
A lot of gray hair before the age of 40
Having gray hair over the years is totally normal for every human being who ages naturally. However, if you notice that your hair is starting to get more gray (more than 50%) while you are under 40, it could be an early sign of diabetes. If you have gray hair at a young age and it is not hereditary, it is recommended to consult a doctor.
Extremely cold feet
The feet tend to be the coldest part of the body as it is the farthest part of the heart, so it makes sense that the first signs of cardiovascular disease initially manifest themselves in the feet. Cold or numb extremities, such as hands or fingers, feet or toes, and nose and ears, may be symptoms of Raynaud’s syndrome.
Most moles are benign, but they can be a sign of skin cancer. It is better to have all your moles examined by a doctor, especially if you notice new ones that were not there before. In addition, stains that appear after long exposure to the sun can be of concern.
A region of the swollen neck
Having a swollen neck area can be a source of immediate concern. If you notice that your neck is swollen more than usual, it could mean that your thyroid gland is not functioning properly. This is often observed in women aged 20 to 50 years.
The whites of your eyes change color
Our eyes are a very important part of the body to see the state of our health. The whites of our eyes must always remain white, so any color change can be disturbing. For example, yellowing of the eyes may be an indicator of jaundice or liver or gallbladder problems. If white has a strong red color, it may indicate conjunctivitis or high blood pressure.
