Doctors announced that the condition of the fingers and hands warns of serious heart diseases.
Doctorpiter.ru indicates that the hands help diagnose heart diseases. But some heart diseases do not have obvious symptoms such as palpitations, chest pain and shortness of breath. But doctors emphasize that the hands can detect and warn of these diseases. So you should always pay attention to the condition of the fingers and hands.
He adds, the appearance of bumps on the palms of the hands and fingertips should not be neglected. Because it may indicate infective endocarditis, a person with inflammation of the blood vessels and the chambers of the heart suffers.
The bacteria that cause this disease reach through the bloodstream and stick to weak areas of the heart, and when left untreated, they cause damage to the heart valves.
Canadian Dr. Gita Yadav, a dermatologist, warns that even if the bumps disappear suddenly, it is necessary to consult a doctor and take a skin biopsy to study it.
Under the nails, purple or red streaks or spots may appear on the nails, and these are ignored by everyone. But you should pay attention to these lines and not ignore them.
The results of a study published in the Journal of Travel Medicine showed that these lines may indicate a pathological infection or heart disease, so self-treatment should be excluded, especially if these lines are accompanied by high body temperature and irregular heartbeat.
Dr. Yadav explains, splinter hemorrhage is a sign of a serious abnormality in the body. This is usually caused by small clots that damage the capillaries under the nails. There are three reasons for its appearance:
Infection of the heart valves (endocarditis).
Damage to blood vessels due to swollen blood vessels (vasculitis)
– The appearance of small clots that damage the small capillaries (micropoly).
There are symptoms of clubbing of the fingers, called “Hippocratic fingers”, in which the ends of the fingers are swollen. This condition may indicate serious heart problems, because the body suffers from a chronic lack of oxygen.
The Russian doctor, Anna Korenevich, a cardiologist, explains that this condition is usually observed in heavy smokers. The cause may be congenital heart disease, where the body redistributes oxygen due to its lack. So the peripheral tissues – on the fingers and toes – don’t get enough of it.
Another serious disease is amyloidosis, which refers to soft, wax-like bumps that form as a result of a buildup of protein in the heart.
This disease is very dangerous and requires immediate medical attention. Because according to Mayo Hospital experts, this disease prevents the heart stone from filling with blood between beats, which leads to reduced blood flow throughout the body and the appearance of waxy bumps on the arms. The disease is very rare and cannot be diagnosed immediately.
The appearance of red or brown spots on the palms of the hands may indicate heart problems. These spots are called (Janway’s rash), of course, these spots may be painless and disappear on their own within a few days or weeks. However, it should not be ignored.
