Your question is too broad to answer sufficiently. There are too many nutrients and too many signs to review. Restate with specifics if you can.

Many signs of nutrient deficiencies occur. Depends on the nutrient. Protein malnutrition results in kwashiorkor; hypoglycemia can result from inadequate carbohydrates before vigorous, prolonged exercise. B12 deficiency can result in numbness and tingling of the extremities and dementia. Vitamin d deficiency can cause loss of height, bone fractures, fatigue, infections and cancers.
