How Much Do You Think About Your Fingernails?

Most of us think about our fingernails on an aesthetic level: “Are my nails painted nicely?”, “Do I need to trim my nails?”, “How do I stop biting my nails?”, but do you think about what your nails say on a deeper level? Our fingernails can give us information about our health, about diseases, and about our personalities.

Some Of The Things Our Nails Can Reveal To Doctors:

  • Conditions like lupus, psoriasis, liver failure, iron deficiency, thyroid problems, and even arsenic poisoning.
  • Melanoma of the nails.
  • Signs of aging.
