8 Serious Diseases That Are Signaled By Our
Skin Your skin is the main indicator that your
body may be experiencing some health problems. That doesn’t mean to just pay attention
to your acne. It goes way beyond that. People usually ignore when something appears
on their skin unless it makes them look “ugly”. We’re so caught up with looking our best,
and feeling our best that we sometimes neglect the minor things that appear on our body. But the longer you ignore, the worst it gets. As soon as something unusual appears on your
skin, it’s important to go see your doctor right away. At this point, you’re probably asking yourself,
what are some of the signs that appear on our skin that can give off some red flags? Well, believe it or not, there are a number
of signs that you should be aware of. Now, keep watching for some of the most common
skin problems that can appear if there is something off about your body. Before we begin this video, don’t forget

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! Dark spots on our skin can also be caused
by a number of things. For example, some people develop dark spots
on their skin as they age – known as sun spots or liver pots. These spots are caused by long term exposure
to the sun. Some dark spots though, can be a cause of
melanoma, which is the deadliest type of skin cancer. 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. One of the main signs and symptoms of vitiligo
is loss of skin color. This usually occurs in patches. The discoloration first appears on areas of
the skin which are exposed to the sun. This includes face, lips, feets, arms, and
hands. Other symptoms include graying of your eyelashes,
scalp, hair, eyebrows, or beard. People with vitiligo may also notice loss
of color along the tissue in the inside of their nose or mouth, as well as change of
color in a person’s inner eyeball. Depending on the severity and type of vitiligo
one has, someone may experience discoloration all over their body, on one side or part of
their body, or only on a certain areas of a person’s body. If you notice that this is happening to you,
make an appointment with an endocrinologist or dermatologist. Do you know what excessive sweating could
say about our health? Well, make sure you keep watching till the
end to find out! 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. Regardless what it may be, it’s smart to
go to the doctor and keep an eye on your health when you notice a major skin rash that just
isn’t going away. It could lead to something pretty serious
like Stevens-Johnson Syndrome or Lyell’s syndrome. 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. Hypothyroidism is a condition that happens
when the thyroid gland doesn’t produce a sufficient amount of hormones. Some other symptoms include dry skin, face
and limb edemas, hair loss, fragile nails and weight gain. You should also keep in mind that swelling
can occur for a number of other reasons. For example, when you eat a particularly carb
heavy meal, your body may hold onto water weight. This could cause inflammation. But not to worry, this inflammation goes down
in a few days. If you notice unusual and recurring inflammation,
then it may be cause for worry – particularly if the swelling doesn’t seem to go away. 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. There are many reasons why people get acne
breakouts. One of the main reasons people get breakouts
is due to fluctuating hormone levels. It occurs when the hair follicles in a person’s
face (or other body part) becomes clogged up with dead skin cells and oils. This can then create blackheads, pimples,
or whiteheads. These appear most commonly on a person’s face,
upper back, chest, forehead, and shoulders. 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. One such example of a disease which results
in flaking skin, according to the Genetic and Rare Diseases Information Center (GARD),
is peeling skin syndrome. Peeling skin syndrome is a type of genetic
disorder which causes a person’s skin to continuously peel off. People who suffer from this genetic disorder
also experience frequent reddening and itching of their skin. This typically starts early in life, right
after birth, but it is also possible that someone can develop this condition later on
in life. Now that you know about some serious signs
of health issues that could be signalled by our skin, here is what excessive sweating
could mean about our health! 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. If you feel like you have this, go see your
doctor as soon as you can! There are many different symptoms of Graves’
disease, including tremors in the hands or fingers, anxiety, irritability, bulging eyes,
fatigue, frequent bowel movements, and more .People who have Graves Disease can also experience
a multitude of complications. This can include complications during pregnancy
which can include miscarriage, poor fetal growth, preterm birth, and more. Graves disease can also lead to heart disorders,
brittle bones, and more. So, do you experience any of these health
issues? It’s important to stay on top of your health
and to notice any strange or unusual changes in your skin or health to ensure that you
have not developed any kind of illness. If you notice any sudden changes to your body,
be sure to take the right steps to ensure that you get checked out and get treated properly. Remember, your health is number one! What kind of skin issues have you experienced

  • The only thing I experience is night sweats. No matter what I wake up sweating even my pillows are wet

  • My cousin has Vitiligo

  • I have perioral dermatitis

  • I have hyperthyroidism. I've had it since 1992. 2003, I was 282 pounds and thyroid doc wanted to destroy my thyroid. I wouldn't let them. Also, the medicines I tried, I was allergic to everyone of them. My regular doc has been trying to get me to destroy it. My gut tells me not to. My symptoms I have are not severe as some hyperthyroid patients. Now he is trying to scare me with osteoporosis. I'm finding out women can still get it whether or not they have a thyroid disorder. My body has grown accustomed to my disorder. I'm going to hang on as long as I can. I told my doc that by destroying thyroid I would be trading one problem for another. Why aren't they advanced enough to make thyroid normal without causing it to go hypo?
