The Color of Your Tongue Can Reveal Your Health Condition

Sometimes our bodies give us a lot of information about our health, and the tongue can also reveal a lot. Besides helping us speak, eat, and drink, the tongue can indicate abnormal health conditions.

According to a TikTok video posted by “healthwellnesslifestyle,” the color of the tongue can indicate certain health issues. A light pink tongue is considered healthy, while a yellow tongue may indicate stomach or digestive problems.

A white or gray tongue is often associated with dehydration, while a purple tongue can be a sign of lung or heart problems. A bright red tongue may indicate heart or circulatory issues.

The British newspaper The Mirror reported that the NHS (National Health Service) states that a white tongue is usually not serious and can be easily treated. However, if it is painful, it is recommended to use a soft toothbrush or a tongue scraper and to avoid drinking alcohol, smoking, and consuming spicy or acidic foods.

It is advisable to consult a doctor if you have concerns about your tongue, as a white tongue can indicate health conditions like anemia or oral thrush.
