7 Things Nails Reveal About Your Health

1. White or Pale Nails

If your naked nails are an odd color, look more closely. Very pale nails can be a sign of malnutrition and anemia (not enough iron) or it could be liver disease or even congestive heart failure.

White nails with darker rims can mean liver disease. A pink band at the tips can mean anything from aging to liver, heart or kidney disease, or diabetes.

If your nails have changed colors or get colored spots (except when you’ve bruised them), talk to your doctor.
