Knowing the symptoms your body is telling you that something is wrong with your health can help you stay on top of potential health problems.

Symptoms can often be detected by the appearance and texture of various body secretions such as sweat, urine, mucus and blood.


Sweat is mostly water, and may also contain urea, vitamin C, lactic acid, or ammonia. According to nutritionist Felicia Stoler, sweating is actually your body's natural cooling mechanism. But in some cases, it can send you clear signals that your body is not working properly.

Sudden sweating can be a sign of serious diseases such as heart attack, diabetes, hormonal changes and cancer. If you are sweating excessively, it is better to consult your doctor to solve the problem.

The blood

Blood is responsible for removing waste from the kidneys and liver and delivering oxygen to the rest of the body via the hemoglobin found in red blood cells. Blood can indicate anemia or high blood pressure.

For this reason, it is necessary to control symptoms such as: dizziness, sweating, shortness of breath, weight loss, fatigue, high temperature, night sweats and loss of appetite.

The lining of your nose produces an incredible amount of mucus every day, which acts as a protective barrier, filtering the air you breathe to protect it from incoming dust and bacteria. The color of your mucus can reveal whether you are sick or not.

Clear mucus is normal and usually means you're not sick, but if your nose is excessively runny, it could mean you have allergies like hay fever. Yellow mucus indicates that your disease is progressing and that your immune system is fighting the infection.

Green mucus occurs when the yellow mucus cannot wash away all disease-causing germs. Red or brown mucus could mean you have blood in your nose, which could be the result of an injury, irritation or nosebleed.


Ideal urine is pale in color and interestingly it can change from pale to dark throughout the day. You shouldn't worry about fluorescent-yellow or orange-red urine, which means you're dehydrated, have consumed too much vitamin C, or eaten red-colored foods like beets.

However, some colors and smells can be more disturbing and can help you detect if something is wrong. Such brown urine can be a sign of porphyria - a disorder that threatens the nervous system.

Blood in your urine means you could be dealing with something as simple as a urinary tract infection or kidney stones.

Orange urine can mean you have liver problems. Also, frequent urination or discomfort during urination can be a warning sign of serious diseases such as bladder cancer.
