The skin is the largest organ and it is constantly exposed to different factors and influences. Carefully look for any possible changes on your skin. Before you apply your body lotion after you have had a shower, look at your skin closely. Use a mirror to check your back.

If you notice any color changes, growths, spots, or dark moles, make sure you consult a dermatologist and do some check-ups. These tests are super-easy and painless, and they can help you prevent many life-threatening diseases, including melanoma.

5. Nails

Your nails are an elegant decoration and a way to show your creativity to the world. But, you should pay more attention to their function. Regardless of whether they are small or severe, any change on your nails may indicate that you are dealing with a certain disease.

Pale nails

Bright nails mean that you have a light nail base or tissue under your nails. This could indicate anemia, and you should sure do a blood test.

Anemia is caused by iron deficiency, and you should introduce some changes in your diet and eat more leafy greens, beetroot and beans.

Brittle nails

Brittle nails may be a matter of genetics or calcium deficiency, but sometimes they indicate improper function of your thyroid. The thyroid gland is located in the neck and its proper function is essential for your metabolism, energy and growth.

Poor hormone secretion leads to hair loss, brittle nails, slow growth of the nails, or even splitting of the nail from the skin. If you notice any of these chances, consult your doctor to examine the function of your glands by doing a simple blood test.

Yellow and thick nails

Thick nails are more common on the toes, and they are usually yellow. These changes indicate fungal diseases that affects the entire surface of the nail.

Regular coatings and creams are not that effective, because the area you want to treat is under the nail, and such products cannot go through the nail. Treat these unsightly changes with special antifungal prescription drugs.

White lines

Horizontal white lines, also known as the Muehrcke lines, indicate lack of protein and other nutrients, kidney disease, or liver abnormalities.

Eat more protein, and if the condition does not change after a month, consult your doctor.

Bruised nails

Bruised nails mean that you lack oxygen. It may be a disease of the respiratory tract or even the cardiovascular system. Bruising nails are also caused by poor circulation or long-term exposure to low temperatures, but any significant change indicates that you should consult your doctor.
