Language is not just a body that allows people to express thoughts and feelings through speech, but also an indicator of a person’s health. Changes in its appearance, structure and form usually indicate various disruptions in the functioning of internal organs.
Tongue and language color
In a healthy person, the tongue should be pale pink. If he is pale, it indicates a lack of vitamins and minerals, chronic diseases and malnutrition. Red language indicates a violation of metabolic processes in the body. The bright red color is caused by disturbances in the functioning of the cardiovascular system and blood disease.
Yellow color is a sign of hepatitis and gastrointestinal problems. It is also found in smokers. A bluish tongue signals the appearance of heart disease and anemia. Plaque usually indicates the presence of toxins in the intestine or stomach. White plaque signals lung disease and poor bowel function. In the event of a gray dry plaque, the gastrointestinal tract should be fully examined, since an abscess may develop in the abdominal cavity.
Black bloom occurs when there are serious problems in the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract, in particular the gallbladder. Yellow patina is found in liver diseases (hepatitis). The appearance of green plaque is associated mainly with fungal infections and liver diseases. Sometimes it can occur due to poor hygiene or unbalanced nutrition.
Brown patina is a symptom of cholera and Crohn's disease, febrile diseases, chronic gastroenteritis, and severe dehydration.
Too thin tongue signals violations of the circulatory system and poor metabolism. Changes in relief indicate an insufficient amount of B vitamins. Slightly thickened tongue is a clear sign of diseases of the liver and digestive system.
An enlarged and swollen organ speaks of problems with the gastrointestinal tract. If there is a bulge in the front, there is probably something wrong with the lungs. Uneven strip in the center indicates problems with the spine.
An enlarged tip of an overly long tongue indicates heart failure. Swollen veins on the inside - a symptom of heart disease. In people suffering from liver failure and pathologies of the digestive system, the tongue often becomes thickened.
A swollen body speaks of problems that are associated with disruption of the thyroid gland. If the surface of the tongue is covered with grooves and reliefs, this may indicate dehydration and problems in the functioning of the kidneys. Cracks in various places of the tongue make it possible to detect the presence of diabetes, asthma and other pathologies.
Often in the language there is one or more spots. The appearance of a small pigmentation on the edges of the organ is caused by thrush. The spot located under the tongue indicates that the brain receives little oxygen or the presence of pathology of cerebral vessels.
Yellow spots indicate necrosis, cancer or inflammation of the tongue. Often observed in heavy smokers. Purple spots indicate blood stasis. Black spots occur due to bad habits or prolonged use of medical drugs.
Velvety is felt due to the papillae, which are located on its surface and are taste buds. If the tongue becomes rough and rough, then something is wrong with the health. For example, this may indicate dehydration, excessive consumption of vitamin A, A and D groups, or overdose with medications.
If the tongue is also swollen, then there are problems with the gallbladder and the excretion of bile. A dry organ combined with roughness is a sign of severe gastrointestinal diseases, such as ulcers or peritonitis. In the presence of dryness and cracks, it is worth checking for diabetes.
Atrophy of the papillae (taste buds) leads to the fact that the surface of the body becomes shiny and smooth, as if lacquered. This symptom usually occurs due to problems with the absorption of vitamin B2, as well as with a malignant tumor of the stomach and chronic colitis.
