Have you ever looked closely at your hands? They give these signals about your health

Feeling numbness in fingertips 

This too may indicate problems with blood circulation. However, it can also be the result of a pinched nerve or cardiovascular disease.

White or blue, numb fingers

This can be a sign of Buerger’s disease. This condition leads to increasing inflammation in the small and medium blood vessels. It is often a result of heavy smoking.

Pale nail bed

If you press on your nail bed for a while it will turn white, but then pink again. This is normal. However, if the nail bed remains white, this may be a sign of iron deficiency.

Shaking hands

First, pay attention to your caffeine intake and stress level. Too much stress and coffee can cause vibrations in your hands. Does this not explain it? Then visit your doctor. It can be an early sign of Parkinson’s.

Red, spotty palms

If this lingers, go to the doctor. It can be an early sign of a liver disease.

Swollen fingers

This is usually the result of too much salt. Try to eat less and see if it helps you retain less water.

Sweaty palms

This may be the result of an overactive thyroid gland. If you suffer from it very often, call your doctor.
