In brief: Nutrient deficiency
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.

In brief: Nutrition
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.
