8. Dark spots. Dark spots popping up on your skin is not supposed to be a natural, aging thing. It actually COULD be a symptom of adrenal insufficiency, also known as Addison’s disease. Again, it has the potential to be that but it’s not always Addison’s disease.
Those who do suffer from Addison’s disease feel serious pain in their muscles and joints, also losing their appetite. In addition, they have low blood pressure and even lower blood sugar. These symptoms can be harmful, so be on the lookout!
7. Vitiligo. Ever notice those people who lose pigmentation on their hands? Those white patches? Well, that’s called vitiligo. It happens when there’s a certain area of your skin that turns white because the cells no longer make pigment.
According to health specialists, vitiligo develops when melanocytes cells are killed by the body’s immune system. Vitiligo is a type of disease which causes people to lose skin color. It can affect any part of a person’s body, including their hair and the inside of their mouth. This occurs when the cells which are responsible for melanin are no longer functioning, and it is more noticeable in those who have darker skin.
6. Skin Rash It’s pretty basic knowledge that a skin rash means that something is up with your body. People typically get rashes after they eat a certain food, take a new medication or even have a contagious disease like chicken pox.
5. Swelling. Swelling, or edema, is a medical term for when our body parts begin to swell. This can occur all over the body or on only small areas of the body. This occurs when our small blood vessels begin to leak fluid into our nearby tissues. Some of us swell up from time to time, but if you notice that you are becoming inflamed every day you should go see an endocrinologist because that could be a sign of hypothyroidism. It’s pretty common, but it’s not something that you should joke about.
4. Moles. Doctors and researchers say that there are various reasons why our bodies produce new moles, one being basic heredity. Usually, moles can be harmless. But if you have a bunch that grow on your skin fairly quickly, are painful, or change in color and size…it could be a sign of underlying health issues.
3. Acne. We’re all pretty familiar with acne and there are different reasons why we get them. Too much skin oil that clogs facial pores, hormone imbalance or digestion problems. Acne is always a consequence. If you want to get rid of it, use a proper facial skin care, a doctor or dermatologist may be able to help you with a form of treatment.
2. Flaking. Why does it happen? It can be due to a vitamin deficiency, a hormone imbalance, an allergic reaction…and a few other diseases. When it’s intense and comes with other symptoms, it can be a sign of a serious disease.
1. Excessive sweating. Excessive sweating could be a result of Graves’ disease. This is an autoimmune disease that affects your thyroid. As a result, the skin becomes thinner and sometimes always itches
