2. Brittle nails and thinning hair
Problems with fingernails that break too easily might be more than just an inconvenience. Brittle nails could be your body’s way of telling you that you are suffering from malnutrition, anemia or liver disease, especially if they also have a pale appearance.
Hair loss is something else that should not be dismissed too quickly. Everyone is accustomed to losing a bit of hair on a regular basis but it’s worth paying attention to if you start losing more than you usually do. Hair loss can be an indication of thyroid trouble, which can lead to a whole host of other health problems that can actually be life-threatening.
