7 Things Your Hands Can Tell About Your Health

4. Dry hands

The most common reasons for dry skin on the hands are dehydration and estrogen deficiency which goes hand-in-hand with menopause. To avoid dehydration drink enough water and use moisturizing hand creams. Include oily fish, seeds, and nuts in your diet. Visit your doctor for hormonal replacement therapy, it will help you to control the estrogen drop.

It’s known that shaking hands can be a sign of serious health problems like Parkinson’s Disease. If you have serious concern go and get medical advice. In the meantime limit your strong coffee and alcohol intake because they can also cause trembling hands. Other possible reasons are anxiety and major stress.

6. Weak nails

Weak or cracked nails can be a symptom of zinc deficiency. Zinc is really important for our health, it promotes wound healing, helps cells divide, and strengthens the immune system. Add some zinc-rich foods to you diet like oats, nuts, and meat. Doctors also recommend taking zinc as a supplement if its level is low in your body.

7. Clubbed fingers

If your fingers look like a club or a drumstick where the nail and finger develop a bulbous end, usually there’s a deficit of the oxygen in your body.
