What does the color of the language mean?

In healthy people, the tongue is light pink, sometimes covered with a slight bloom, through which the nipples of the mucous membrane are visible. It is necessary to catch flu or measles, as it becomes purple, and with serious viruses, dysentery, liver and spleen, it can even turn black. Too pale tongues can signal anemia, poor nutrition, or heart problems. White shade often indicates dehydration, and bluish - to poisoning with heavy metals. The tongue can even be blue (if the kidneys are damaged) or violet (when the respiratory system is not in order). Periodontitis or gingivitis causes the tongue to change color to dark brown.

Plaque on the tongue often means that there is inflammation in the oral cavity, but it can also speak about problems with the internal organs, most often with the digestive tract. If it accumulates in the middle of the tongue, one may suspect exacerbation of gastritis or its chronic form, if closer to the root, it makes sense to check the condition of the intestines.On violations of the lungs indicates the appearance of plaque on the edges of the tongue and at its tip. Color of the accumulated substance is also important. The yellow and dark shade of the cover suggests that the gallbladder, spleen, or liver become hardened. Although yellowish plaque often suffer and relatively healthy, but smokers.

Before you panic, noticing changes in the color of the tongue or plaque, you need to watch him for several days. In this case, the inspection is carried out in the morning before washing with natural light. If the strange shade has disappeared and the plaque is easily removed with a toothbrush or spoon, there may be no cause for concern.
