9. White stains on teeth
Dental fluorosis is a chronic disease that develops either before teething or after (when consuming large amounts of water or products with a high content of fluorine compounds). There are 5 types of fluorosis classification: questionable, very mild, mild, moderate, and severe. The first 3 variations manifest visually through the appearance of stains (like in the photo above), while the last 2 lead to decaying teeth tissues and teeth crumbling.
10. Hair loss
On average, a person sheds about 100 hairs per day all because hair follicles go through certain growth stages that can last from 2 to 8 years. When the growth stage is over, the hair strand falls out and a new one starts to grow after a 2-month rest. This means that at one point in time, 80%-90% of a person’s hair is growing, while the rest of it is shedding or is in a resting phase. However, if you have noticed a more significant hair loss, you’d better consult a doctor because there are a bunch of diseases that can be hiding behind this symptom. Those can consist of skin infections, thyroid disorders, autoimmune disorders, etc.
As you might have noticed, each of these symptoms separately is not a reason for big worry or a serious diagnosis. It’s important to assess your condition objectively and pay attention to additional changes in appearance and well-being. The main thing to remember is that you’re better off not neglecting visiting specialists because it’s only them who can give an exact answer to your questions and make an adequate treatment plan.
