This may be the only early sign of sleep apnea.A sleep disorder characterized by obstruction in the airways that can increase your risk of pulmonary hypertension and subsequent heart failure.
Also known as cheilitis.This can signal a deficiency in B vitamins,especially vitamin B12,which can put you at risk of illnesses such as anaemia.For a simple source of B12 use popcorns,olive oil,nutritional yeast and cayenne pepper.
(3)DARK YELLOW URINE.
For a healthy body,your urine should be crystal clear.If you see a lot of yellow in the toilet,you are probably not drinking enough fluids.Drink a lot of water to avoid kidney stones.
Several studies link gum problems with heart disease,stroke and arthritis.The inflammatory response from gum disease may increase harmful chemicals circulating in your body.If you see red on your tooth brush,”STOP!” and see your dentist.
(5)A POT BELLY.
A waist larger than 40 inches for men,or 35 inches for women,doubles the risk of dying of a heart attack or stroke.Abdominal fat changes the the way our bodies work in profound ways.Some abdominal fat hugs organs and leads to production of hormones and other substances that increase the risk of heart disease,diabetes,dementia and some cancers.
(6)YOU ARE GETTING SHOTTER.
Though rare,isn’t it?Strange.The doctor nearby measured you two years ago.You were five feet.Now you are five point five.There’s a reason why you are shrinking.It is because your bones are degenenarating as a result of osteoporosis.To protect your bones,make sure you are getting enough of natural calcium,vitamin D and relaxation responses which are rarely prescribed by doctors.
(7)WEIRD TESTICAL ORGANS.
This is for men.Men should be watching for changes,pain or lumps in their testicles.Lumps may be indicating prostate cancer.
Your headache symptoms can help your doctor determine it’s cause and the appropriate treatment.Most headaches are not serious but some may result from a life threatening condition requiring emergency care.Possible causes of headaches are acute sinusitis,brain tumor,concussion,ear infection,hypertension,post-concussion syndrome,stroke,hangovers,toxoplasmosis,brain aneurysm(a bulge in an artery in your brain) and serious eye condition.Next time you have a severe headache,visit the nearest doctor as fast as possible.
(9)BEING DROP-DEAD TIRED.
Fatigue is you body’s way of telling you something.When you have just slept for 9+ hours and after waking up,it is like you have been digging a shamba all night.You may be having cancer or anaemia which makes you feel that way.
