What Your Body is Telling Me | Doctor Mike

just by looking at you I can tell what's wrong with you if you want to look your best and whenever you have any imperfection you're quick to blame it on aging or stress but really that's not all the signs that something is wrong with your body if your

insides aren't healthy that will show superficially that's why when you come into my office I look at you as a whole what warning signs are appearing on you superficially then I can figure out to lead to a diagnosis before I spill the beans and explain to you everything

that's going on you need to understand how the body works it works in a system and it's made up of multiple components when one of those components doesn't work a lot of times that can show signs on your physical appearance if one part isn't working another part of

the body compensates that's the way your body maintain something what we call homeostasis a balance of what's normal wait one more thing before we start it's important to know that while I'm giving you a lot of physical appearance signs it doesn't mean that you have the disease if

you have one of these all it means is that you need to go to your doctor and have a conversation something you should be doing anyway if you've been watching my videos boom these are the top physical signs that tell me something else is going on inside your

body facial flush or rosy cheeks do you feel like your face looks a little too red not talking about the time where you get sunburned or when your crush looks at you hey girl you may have a medical condition called rosacea rosacea is a fairly common skin problem

with 14 million people living with the issue in the United States today it's not something you should get really concerned about thinking it's a danger to your health but it's a simple benign condition that can be treated by your doctor wait wait wait one more thing about facial

flush if you're part of the asian population you may suffer from something called asian watch that's what happens when you drink alcohol but because you're deficient in the enzyme acetyl-coa yeah that's a mouthful you may have a reaction because you can't clear the alcohol properly you may think

you have a thin chin you may think you have a thick neck you may think it's just a cosmetic problem and not that big of a deal I think it's a serious risk factor for an illness called sleep apnea which can predispose you to so many bad illnesses

including stroke heart disease high blood pressure when you have sleep apnea there's actually moments in the night where your airway completely closes whether it's because it's too small or too big it and when that happens it ruins the quality of your sleep we've all heard our partners snore

at night or wake up in the middle of the night because their breathing wasn't right that sleep apnea one of the best lifestyle changes you can make for sleep apnea is to lose weight unwanted body hair ladies this is mostly for you if you start growing hair where

you've never had hair before it doesn't mean you should pay a visit to your spa but it does mean you should pay a visit to your doctor why because that actually has a medical word behind it it's called hirsutism and what that means is you started growing hair

in a place where men usually grow hair this could be due to a hormonal problem one of the most common being PCOS which is polycystic ovarian syndrome when you pair hirsutism plus abnormal periods that's highly suspicious for PCOS a man you got stanky breath bro if you have

bad breath or what's medically known as halitosis it could be a sign of acid reflux during acid reflux the stomach contents including food acid all get pushed up into your esophagus and create this nasty smell that you may notice when you think you have bad breath a lot

of people think they'll solve this problem by brushing your teeth more that's not the solution the solution is to go see your doctor some say the eyes are the window to the soul but what I say the nails are the window to your health when a patient comes

into my office and I'm doing a physical exam I pay extra attention to the nails the nails give me a lot of information on what's going on inside your body and tip me off to some illnesses I should be on the lookout for if you have clubbing of

the fingers that could point to a chronic respiratory infection if you have spooning of your nails that could point to a chronic anemia process some of you may worry about white marks or lines on your nails and generally that's not a problem but if you do have two

lines running parallel horizontally across your nail that could be something called Weirich slides and representative of kidney or liver issues some of you may find dents or ridges in your nails and generally that's not something you should be concerned about if that does occur with some weird symptoms

at the same time that's definitely something I want to hear about and could point to a more serious autoimmune issue do you guys remember what the body's largest organ is no skin first things first you know you have that little pimple and a little scratch that never seems

to heal to you that may not be of any importance but to me it's incredibly important if you have a non-healing wound of the face its squamous cell carcinoma until my tests prove otherwise also what most importance to skin are moles no no no no not this type

of mole oh bloody mouth yeah that's the MA long time most of the time moles are completely harmless and benign however sometimes they may represent a serious form of skin cancer the way doctors make this distinction is using the ABCDE classification system along with dermis Coupee when you're

younger it's not abnormal to form new moles however as you age in your 50s and 60s if you're still developing new moles that could be a cause for concern and cause me to investigate further hair it's perfectly normal to see a few strands in the shower but if

your shower drain looks like a baby rodent there might be something else going on excessive hair loss can be caused by an overactive or underactive thyroid or something like anemia so when a patient walks into my office I pay extra attention to what's going on in their scalp

however have no fear a lot of these issues can be diagnosed by a simple blood test also it's important to remember that you're able to lose up to a hundred strands of hair per day and that's totally acceptable the eyes will give you a lot of information if

you look at the color of the eye if there's something off it's not perfectly white a lot of times you'll see some yellowing of the eyes and as a medical name it's called jaundice that occurs when there's something wrong with your liver or your gallbladder I can also

look below your eye and get some extra information things like redness or bags can represent something called allergic shiners which is a very common symptom of people who suffer with allergies springtime fall time very common if you don't sleep well if you eat high sodium foods if you're

dehydrated the appearance of your eyes is gonna appear fatigue heavy sad and it's not gonna be a pretty sight you know what they say about big feet right yeah ya know it's important to make sure that they're not just swollen that could represent a wide variety of medical

issues things like congestive heart failure circulation issues lung issues autoimmune things like arthritis all of those can lead your legs to balloon up but if you have some mild swelling at the end of a long day of being on your feet that's something called dependent edema and likely

nothing to worry about a lot of these signs I've pointed out may seem like superficial concerns but they truly tell me a whole story of what's going on inside your body never be afraid to tell your doctor something doesn't feel right look right or even smell right if

you have any questions in the meanwhile drop me a comment down below we'll have a conversation and figure out what's going on otherwise make sure to hit subscribe and share this channel with your friends and family those people over there a little weird oh wait that's me the

food that's supposed to be in your belly along with the acid gets regurgitated back into your esophagus which creates that nasty smell you hear look into my you will see hey yo you got swollen feet you know what that means right big socks snug Footwear
