Red Palms

Hi, I'm 39 years old and I think I have quite a few food allergies. I'm currently being tested for these but I recently found that I have red palms which I read was a symptom of liver disease. My hands are often cold unless I'm working out in which case they're warm.

I also had a physical recently and my doctor told me that I will need an ultrasound because of a "slight elevation in my liver function" that was picked up during the physical.

I sometimes also get slight tingling in my fingers when I sleep at night. Other symptoms I have are excessive gas(hardly any stomach pain) & lightheadedness which is fairly common. Should I be overly concerned that I have liver disease or is this likely an allergic reaction? Has anyone with allergies had similar symptoms that I have? Red palms, tingling, excess gas, lightheaded.

Thanks for any help, Jon

Re: Red Palms

It can also be a sign of high blood pressure. My friend has high blood pressure that is controlled by medication and when blood pressure is really high, her palms are red.
Embrace the beauty of silent moments and simple things.
