16 Hidden Signs You’re Not As Healthy As You Think
Don’t ignore these warning signs.
You’re losing weight
Of course this doesn’t apply if you’re watching your diet or hitting the gym, but if you’re losing weight for no apparent reason, consult a health pro. These are some scary reasons weight loss could signal a serious problem.
You’re gaining weight
Just like unexplained weight loss, unexplained weight gain is also something to see a doctor about. It could be a sign of an underactive thyroid, polycystic ovarian syndrome, or these 15 signs your weight gain means your health is in trouble.
You have a low libido
If you never feel like getting frisky between the sheets, you might want to talk to someone about it. Having a low libido can be totally normal, but it can also be caused by a hormone imbalance, depression or high blood pressure. Check with your doctor if these 12 surprising ways to boost your sex drive don’t work.
You’re losing a lot of hair
Losing 100 strands per day is normal, but if you’re pulling out more than that, talk to a professional. Significant hair loss can be a symptom of hypothyroidism or you could be lacking some essential nutrients. Learn about more sneaky things your hair can reveal about your health.
You’re not regular
If you’re eating a high-fiber diet and drinking a lot of water, and you’re still not regular with your bowel movements, take note.

Find out 11 more things bowel movements reveal about your health.
You have strange food cravings
