6 signs showing the body is unhealthy

The body shows signs of ill health most times before it finally 'breaks down'! These 6 signs are never to be missed.

 

Sometimes the body reacts in certain way to different issues going on within it and in cases of serious illnesses, there are always signs and more it shows that when caught early can help cure whatever health issue is coming.

These five unusual signs are not ones to ever ignore as they could be symptoms of serious underlying health issues.

1. Getting shorter

Shrinking/growing shorter may be as a result of bones degenerating as against it being a result of aging. Growing shorter/losing one's frame could be due to a medical condition called osteoporosis which could eventually result into a hip fracture.

2. Not sleeping

Insomnia should be treated as it also does the body more harm than good. When there's a lack of sleep/insomnia the body's cortisol level skyrocket as a result of different stress response within the body which if left untreated does more harm than good.

3. Coloured urine (yellow to dark yellow)

The colour of one's urine is a one sure way to know if the body is in great shape. If urine changes in colour as against being completely clear then the body needs more hydration i.e water.

4. Irregular bowel movement

Irregular bowel movement might be an indication of something going wrong apart from the obvious constipation. A normal bowel movement helps rid the body of toxins but when this is trapped in the body, it can enter through the bowel lining into the blood stream which becomes harmful to the body.

5. Itching all over the body

Itching all over the body may be an indication of an onset of liver disease.

6. Unexplained weight loss

Sudden weight loss may be linked to cancer, diabetes and more severe issues with the endocrine system.
