Dr Oz did a segment to teach us about what your lip color is telling you about your overall health. Doctor Oz said that your lips change as you age, and we all get dry and cracked lips during the winter sometimes, but dry or cracked lips could be a sign of something seriously wrong. When you are young, your lips are thick and have a nice epidermis, but as you age, your lip color can become more dull, your lips can get thin and it can become harder to keep your lips moist.
Anemia Causes Pale Lips
Dr Oz said that if your lips get pale, it could be because not a lot of oxygen carrying red blood cells are going to your lips. Thus, it is often the case that Pale Lips indicates Anemia in a person.
Heart & Lung Disease Cause Blue Lips
Dr Oz said that blue lips can mean Heart Disease or Lung Disease, because when your red blood cells give up their oxygen, then the blood gives off a blue color since its de-oxygenated.
Liver Disease Causes Yellow Lips
Dr Oz said that as bile builds up from Liver Disease, your skin can become jaundiced and you can get yellow lips.
