When experiencing illness, a human body will show some signs. Body will lethargic and will fill chills when someone is experiencing. A person’s throat will itch when they start suffering from a cough, and there are many other signs that indicates that a body is experiencing or will suffer from illness.
Jacob Franek, Stress Management Specialist who frequently writes on health issues in AskMen, showed five initial signs on the body of a man to find out whether they are healthy or not.
1. Nail colors
Maybe you never thought that the nail can determine the health condition of a human. But that’s reality. In healthy conditions, the nail will be colored pink, strong, and gentle. Striking changes in the nails can be a sign you are suffering from an illness.
Thick yellow nails that grows slow indicates that you suffer from respiratory diseases like chronic bronchitis. If there are curved lines on the surface of the nail -called Beau’s lines, it could be diabetes. Then spoon-shaped nails indicate iron deficiency.
2. Yellowish Urine Color
For someone who is healthy, the urine is pale yellow. Yellowish color of the urine can vary depending on the amount of liquids we consume. When consuming a lot of water usually the urine tend to have a clear yellow color. But when we are dehydrated, the color changes into dark chocolate like tea.
If there is a sweet smell, strange odor, a drop of blood, and significant changes in urine color which is not related to drugs, foods, or supplements that you consume, you better check your urine.
3. Your ejaculation volume is 2-5 ml
At a fertile age, healthy male ejaculation should be about 2-5 ml. If less than that, it indicates that you are in a less fertile condition. This is referred to as hypospermia, a condition that affects male fertility. In addition to volume, color and consistency of semen also shows the condition of your body. Semen in healthy men should be white or gray and sticky. If there is blood or not thick, it could indicate health problems.
4. Heart Rate when Resting Ranging around 70 bpm
Value of heart rate vary according to the age of a person, but normally in the range of 70 and 75 bpm. For adult males the number 60-100 bpm is considered normal. So a heart rate level beyond that means that one is having a pretty serious health problem.
5. Elastic skin
Skin elasticity is commonly used to assess your body’s levels of hydration. Skin that is dull and does not elastic signify lack of fluid. To test elasticity, simply pinch the skin on the back of hand. If it returns to its original position it shows your skin is healthy.
