If there’s one thing the human body is good at, it’s giving people early warning signs. The trick is knowing how to pay attention and be proactive before you get diagnosed with a severe ailment.

Quit overlooking the subtle warnings that your body has been sending you. Changing your self-care habits now will let you reap life-changing rewards later, so why not adopt a more proactive attitude? Here are some of the hallmarks of ill health that you might not have noticed.

If you have the above conditions and are also noticing that your nails are pale at the cuticle and reddish brown at the tip, it could mean that your kidneys are not functioning properly.
