1. Dandruff, hair loss
Dandruff and hair loss indicate vitamin and mineral deficiency. The most common deficiencies are zinc, iron, B2, B3, B6, and B7.
2. Wrinkled hands
Age-related wrinkles are common. Hands and fingers that wrinkle and lose flexibility may indicate dehydration, thyroid difficulties, or poor blood circulation.
3. Tongue white patches
White tongue patches might occur from poor oral care. However, they may indicate oral thrush, which is frequent in diabetics.
There are several causes of skin rashes. Infections or plant contact are possible. If infected, they could be dangerous.
5. Swollen ankles
Salty ankles indicate significant salt intake. They may also signify thyroid underactivity or poor blood circulation.
6. Dry eyes
Eye stinging or irritation indicates dryness. It may indicate Sjogren’s syndrome, an immune system condition that causes dry mouth.
Bloating may indicate nutritional sensitivities. Some foods are allergenic or intolerant, causing gas to expand your stomach.
