What Is Your Body Trying To Tell You?
- Posted on: Feb 21 2018
One of my physician colleagues calls the skin our “Magic Mirror.” The largest organ of our body, it often gives us clues to underlying medical conditions even before they arise. In this email, I’d like to inform you of four clues in your skin that may be a sign that your body is trying to tell you something.
1. A diagonal crease of your earlobe – This crease, otherwise known as “Frank’s Sign,” may be a sign of underlying heart disease. A recent study of 11,000 Danish participants confirmed this association. It’s possible that the crease may signify collagen degradation in both your skin and your blood vessels.
2. Dimple on the breast – A dimple on your breast may be a sign of underlying breast cancer. Recently, a woman shared a photo of this on social media, educating thousands about this possible sign. So if you have a dimple on your breast, make sure to have your doctor check it out.
3. Small red lines on fingernails – These small red lines are called ‘splinter hemorrhages, tiny blood clots that migrate from the heart valves to other parts of the body. They can be a sign of an infection of the heart valves (endocarditis).
4. Erectile dysfunction – ED could be a sign that not only is the penile artery clogged, but that other arteries are clogging, too. Because the penile artery is so tiny in diameter, it is one of the first arteries to become blocked by atherosclerosis. This could be the sign that you or your loved one needs to take steps to prevent a future heart attack.
