19 Things Your Body Can Tell You About Your Health

Your body is a truly amazing machine. Not only is it working 24/7 just to keep you alive, but it can also send you signs when something’s wrong with your health. If you pay close attention to these 19 signs, you might just be able to find the cause before your next doctor’s visit.

19 Things Your Body Could Be Trying To Say About Your Health

1. Puffy Eyes

If your eyes are swollen or puffy, your body might be trying to tell you to get back in bed and catch up on sleep! This could also be an indication of allergies. (1, 2)

2. Dark Skin Patches

If you find dark skin patches that are almost velvety to the touch, this could be an indication of insulin resistance, which can lead to diabetes. (3)

3. Odorous Diarrhea

It may be unpleasant to talk about, and even more unpleasant to experience, but often diarrhea could be a signal of lactose intolerance. If you find you tend to get loose stools after consuming dairy, it may be safer to steer clear. (4)

4. Abnormal Hair

Surprised to see hair growing there? In women, if you find hair growing on your face, back, or in the ears, it’s possible you have a hormone imbalance referred to as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). (5)

5. Pale Skin

If you wake up one morning to find your skin to be extremely pale, you can put all the fears that you’ve become a vampire to rest. It’s more likely that you have anemia, which is an iron deficiency in your blood. (6)

6. Dry Skin

While dry skin could simply be a sign that you live in a dry area, it has also been found to be associated with diabetes. (7)

7. Chapped Lips

Chapped lips generally aren’t anything a bit of chapstick can’t handle, but if moisturizing does your lips no good, your body may be trying to warn you of an allergy to something. (8)

8. Hair Loss

If you find yourself losing hair at an alarming rate, or see that your eyebrows seem to be disappearing, this could be caused by thyroid disease. (9)

9. Breast Size

While many women may be proud to graduate to a bigger bra cup, large breast size can increase your risk of getting breast cancer. (10)

10. Swollen Feet

Unless you spend a lot of time on your feet or are expecting to give birth any time soon, swollen feet is abnormal. If you find it difficult to fit into your favorite shoes, this could be a sign of heart failure. (11)

11. Stinky Feet

While foot odor isn’t abnormal, it can be a sign of bacterial and fungal infections, also known as athlete’s foot. (12)

12. Oddly Shaped Fingernails

Surprisingly, your fingernails can tell you a lot about your health. If your nails have longitudinal lines, this could be a sign of rheumatoid arthritis. White horizontal lines could be a sign of cardiac failure. (13)

13. Ring And Index Finger Length

If your ring finger is longer than your index finger, this might be associated with hand osteoarthritis, which is a condition where your joints deteriorate.  (14)

14. Small Calf Circumference

Studies show that calf circumference is inversely related to resting pulse rate. This means if your calf circumference is small, you may be at risk for high blood pressure and a stoke. (15)

15. Body Mass Index

Research has shown that those with a higher Body Mass Index (BMI) have weaker cognitive abilities, even if they are otherwise healthy. If you’re worried about your cognition later in life, you may want to take weight into consideration. (16)

16. Wrinkles At An Early Age

Wrinkles are a natural part of life. But if you find wrinkles appear on your face early on in life, this could be a sign of osteoporosis. (17)

17. Height And Longevity

Short people seem to be the punchline for one too many jokes, but it turns out they will be getting the last laugh! Studies show that short people tend to have a longer lifespan than tall people. (18)

18. Jaw Pain

If you find yourself waking up with jaw pain or experience difficulty moving your mouth in the mornings, this could be a sign that you’re clenching or grinding your teeth in your sleep. (19)

19. Blood Type A

If you have blood type A, you may be at higher risk for pancreatic cancer. Best to take precautions now just in case! (20)
