Know These 10 Warning Signs About Your Health That Your Nails Could Be Telling You

Your nails can say a lot about you. And not that you are meticulous with your clockwork manicures or that you have anxiety based on their gnawed edges. It can say something about your health.

According to Little Things, abnormalities in your nails can be a sign of nutritional deficiencies and other ailments. They partnered with WebMD to help make you aware of some things your nails may be telling you about yourself.

If your nails are discolored, it can mean a few things. It could be signs of an infection, a nutritional deficiency or a problem with your organs. Yellow colored nails can be a fungal infection or psoriasis and brown can indicate a thyroid problem or malnutrition. White nails may indicate iron deficiency. Blue-gray could mean you’re body isn't getting enough oxygen or that you have an issue with your lungs or heart.

Are your nails brittle and constantly splitting? That can also indicate fungal infections or a thyroid problem. However, before you start freaking out, it could just be a sign of longtime exposure to nail polish and laundry detergents. If you have thick nails, this may be a fungal infection as well. It may also indicate poor circulation, reactive arthritis or lung disease.
