    Nails and Health - Interesting

    Did you know your nails can reveal clues to
    your overall health? A touch of white here, a rosy tinge there, or some
    rippling or bumps may be a sign of disease in the body. Problems in the
    liver, lungs, and heart can show up in your nails. Keep reading to
    learn what secrets your nails might reveal.

    Pale Nails

    Very pale nails are sometimes linked to
    aging. But they can also be a sign of serious illness, such as:


    Congestive heart failure

    Liver disease


    White Nails

    If the nails are mostly white with darker rims, this can indicate liver
    problems, such as hepatitis. In this image, you can see the fingers are
    also jaundiced, another sign of liver trouble.

    Yellow Nails

    one of the most common causes of yellow nails is a fungal infection. As the infection worsens, the nail bed may retract, and nails may thicken and crumble. In rare cases, yellow nails can indicate a more serious condition such as severe thyroid disease or psoriasis.

    Bluish Nails

    Nails with a bluish tint can mean the body isnt getting
    enough oxygen. This could indicate an infection in the lungs, such as

    Rippled Nails

    If the nail surface is rippled or pitted, this may be an
    early sign of psoriasis or inflammatory arthritis. Psoriasis is a skin
    condition that starts in the nails 10% of the time.

    Cracked or Split Nails

    Attachment 16272
    Dry, brittle nails that frequently crack
    or split have been linked to thyroid disease. Cracking or splitting
    combined with a yellowish hue is more likely due to a fungal infection

    Puffy Nail Fold

    If the skin around the nail appears red
    and puffy, this is known as inflammation of the nail fold. It may be
    the result of lupus or another connective tissue disorder.
    Dark Lines Beneath the Nail

    Dark lines beneath the nail should be
    investigated as soon as possible. They are sometimes caused by
    melanoma, the most dangerous type of skin cancer.
    Gnawed Nails

    Biting your nails may be nothing more than
    an old habit, but in some cases its a sign of persistent anxiety that
    could benefit from treatment. Nail biting or picking has also been
    linked to obsessive-compulsive disorder. If you cant stop, its worth
    discussing with your doctor.
    Nails Are Only Part of the Puzzle

    Nails and Health - Interesting-image010.jpg

    Though nail changes accompany many
    conditions, these changes are rarely the first sign. And many nail
    abnormalities are harmless -- not everyone with white nails has
    hepatitis. If you're concerned about the appearance of your nails, see
    a skin doctor dermatologist or a Physician.
