What Kind of Disease does the Color of the Nail imply?

The color of nail does imply different kinds of disease.

The color of a healthy nail should be pink. It should be solid and curved. In total, it should be seen to be flat and smooth. It should be shiny. If the shape and the color of the nail are not normal, it is a warning signal for your health.

1. The color of the nail is pale

If the color of the nail is pale and does have the color of blood, it is mostly seen in the patient with anemia.

If the color of the nail suddenly becomes white, it is mostly seen in the emergencies of blood loss and shock. Or it will be seen in the chronic disease of hookworm, gastrointestinal bleeding, and late stage of tuberculosis.

On the other hand, it should pay more attention to the fact that if the nail is as white as the feathery glass, it will be the characteristic of liver cirrhosis.

2. The color of the nail becomes gray

The color of the nail becoming gray is mostly caused by hypoxia. Generally, it will be seen in smokers. For the non-smokers, if the nail suddenly becomes gray, the owner may suffer from onychomycosis. At the initial stage, the edge of the nail will be itching. After that, the nail will become deformed and is not shiny. It will become abnormally white and gray. For example, the grey armor.

3. The color of the nail turns yellow

Chinese medicine states that the color of the nail turning yellow is mainly caused by damp, heat, and fumigation. It is commonly seen in hypothyroidism and kidney syndrome.

Western medicine thinks that the color of the nail tending to be yellow is mostly related to the lack of vitamins in the body. If the nail turns yellow, the owner should see the doctor as soon as possible as it is the symbol of the decay of the system of the whole body.
