You know that hands can tell a lot about your health? Doctors say that the condition of your hands may be the result of some health changes that occur in your body. But what do they show?
Doctors explain that red palms can indicate liver problems, especially if you are over 50 years old. One possible cause of red palms is a change in hormonal balance (which causes blood vessels to expand) and rheumatoid arthritis.
Usually the rash is on the outer edge of the palm. If you notice red areas, seek medical help. In the meantime, try to follow a healthy diet and reduce alcohol consumption.
Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) and stress can be the reason for sweaty palms. Try to limit alcohol consumption and learn to control stress levels through meditation or breathing techniques. If none of this works, you should definitely consult your doctor.
In some cases, these symptoms on the hands can be a sign of a more serious problem, such as venous thrombosis, anemia, or diabetes. If you often suffer loss of sensitivity in the hands for no apparent reason, consult your doctor about what to do.
The most common reasons for dry skin on the hands are dehydration and estrogen deficiency. Drink enough water, use moisturizing lotions and include oily fish, seeds and nuts in your diet and visit your doctor.
Shaking hands can be a sign of serious health problems, such as Parkinson's. Another reason for this phenomenon is great anxiety and stress. If this happens to you often, see your doctor. In the meantime, limit the consumption of coffee and alcohol, as they can cause your hands to shake.
Thin, weak and cracked nails
Such nails can be an indication of zinc deficiency. Zinc is important for health, stimulates wound healing and helps the immune system. Add zinc-rich foods like oats, nuts and meats to your diet.
