        Your nails are yellow tinted near the tips. You have a bile obstruction or otherwise are not consuming enough fat. This can be cleared up with the aid of bile salts. Your nails have vertical ridges, which indicates low protein, a high carb diet, or low b12/iron.

        https://i.imgur.com/t9eilyQ.jpg

        That white dot underneath your fingernail indicates a Zinc deficiency in conjunction with a high-carb diet. Where it is indicates that you've been deficient at around 5 months ago.
        The lack of the white "luna" can indicate one of three things. Liver cirrhosis, a hear problem, or diabetes. You have the beginnings of paronychia at your cuticles, which indicates hypothyroidism, usually combined with a protein deficiency (specifically tyrosine)

        Lack of luna in pinky, you have liver cirrhosis, a heart problem, or diabetes (the most common is liver cirrhosis, don't worry).
        You have paronychia at your cuticles, it's even swollen. You have hypothyroidism and possibly are protein (tyrosine) deficient. There are white spots under your thumb's nail with white vertical streaks. You have a mild selenium deficiency, which can cause hypothyroid conditions (impaired ability to turn T4 to T3).

        You have no luna on any of your fingers, indicating severe diabetes, cirrhosis, or heart disease. Your nailbeds are tinted white, which indicates low protein, kidney or liver failure, and/or the use of heavy antibiotics for a sustained period of time.

      My nails are cut now but when the nail on each pointer finger grows long it grows in a downward curve shape. The other nails do not do this when they are long.

        Spooned or Clubbed nails (the nail curving unnatural) are a sign of liver or kidney issues. Usually an oxygen delivery issue is paired with this, probably iron deficient.

      Unfortunately for you, lack of luna is a better tell of liver cirrhosis, diabetes, or heart disease than some vague tests that only check if you're already too far gone. There are, of course, tests you can use to identify these issues, such as an ultrasound for your liver, CAC testing for your heart (or a coronary angiogram), or a fasting insulin test for potential diabetes without HbA1c needing to necessarily be in the "diabetes" range (especially important for endurance athletes who "carbo-load" and burn off the sugar fast), but these can cost money.

      Lack of luna: liver cirrhosis, heart problems, or diabetes. White nailbeds indicate low protein, kidney/liver failure, or a sustained period of taking antibiotics for at least the last 6 months. It might be a reflection, but if it's a white dot under your nail on your pinky near the cuticle, that's a very recent zinc deficiency. There are thin, white, horizontal lines near the tip of your pinky, indicating you might have had a calcium deficiency at some point 5-6 months ago, and it would be wise to take more calcium.

      Lack of luna entirely means that you likely have long-term, severe, or chronic form of cirrhosis, heart problems, or diabetes. I see consistent pin-prick sized white dots underneath the nails, indicating a zinc deficiency around 3 months ago. You have white nailbeds, which could mean you have low protein, kidney/liver failure, or have recently been on an antibiotic for the last 6 months. You have a vertical discoloration in the center of your fingernails, indicating low protein, vitamin D, or b12. Vertical white lines like that may indicate a selenium deficiency. Pronounced vertical ridges indicate low b12 or iron.

      What is an actual way to stop being iron deficient? Those pills don’t work for me just constipate me. I have those vertical lines on my fingernails along with the curving. I’ve done an iron transfusion but my insurance only covered one per year. It wasn’t enough.

        They are called lunula. And he likely doesn't have any because he has short nails so they are likely hidden under the skin at the proximal nail fold.

        No lunula means that there might be anemia/b12/folate/iron issues. Or it could be a sign of clinical depression (according to chinese study). People on dialysis often have missing lunula likely due to vitamin and mineral imbalances caused by poorly functioning kidneys. Missing lunula are also found on completely healthy people, for example in this case they are likely obscured by skin covering the nail bed. It is noted that about 50% of newborn babies do not have lunula on most fingers. Typically the thumb is the main finger that have visible lunula due to the absolute size of the thumb nail and it's anatomy which makes the nail matrix more easily visible.

      Most of your nails lack a luna, indicating cirrhosis, heart problems, or diabetes. You have paronychia , which indicates hypothyroidism, and it's usually paired with a tyrosine(protein) deficiency. Your nailbeds are mostly white, which could indicate low protein, kidney/liver failure, or that you were recently on antibiotics for the last 6 months. Your nails are visibly brittle, which indicates a folate/biotin deficiency (which can be found plentifully in leafy green or liver)

Notice his nails are mostly pink with little whiteness, there are no vertical ridges, and he's unashamed of his nail length. This guy's nails are rather healthy. White horizontal mark of moderate thickness near middle of thumb indicates B3 deficiency. You have paronychia, which indicates that you have hypothyroidism and possibly a tyrosine(protein) deficiency. The yellowing of the nails is due to fungus, but, as it has not gone deeper under the fingernail, it should be fine, but you should probably clean it out, especially your thumb's nail.

      Hi, yes, the dot indicates that you eat a high carb diet and have low zinc. If what you're saying is true, is it true for the last 6 months? That's roughly how long it takes for a nail to grow from the cuticle to the tip. The placement of the dot usually coincides to when you ate a large quantity of carbohydrates while being zinc deficient. Somewhere around 3 months ago

    >I eat whole loaves of bread a day, get almost no protein, and I’m skelly. What gives?
    Does IST really need the basics of CI:CO explained to them again? Being thin is better than being fat but being thin is not equivalent to being healthy. You could eat nothing but 1500 calories of whiskey a day and be thin. Would you be healthy?

    Also, to those saying
    >But I don't have a xinc deficiency, I eat plenty of zinc!
    You aren't absorbing it. A single corn tortilla completely stops all zinc from being absorbed with it. There are many foods like this and any number of combinations can cause a deficiency. I'm telling you what you have, not how you got it.

    Impossible. Look up the protein of wheat flour.

    This study associates missing lunula with depression.
    Do you guy with missing lunula (not counting the thumbs) have any kind of depression?
    I've have mild to moderate depression and only have lunula on my thumbs if that matters.

      I wonder what the association is.
      Does some aspect of someone's lifestyle cause the lunula to disappear which also causes depression, like some vitamin deficiency.
      Of do depressed people live a certain bad lifestyle that causes them to become depressed, like not eating right and exercising which causes a deficiency which causes the lunula to disappear and also causes depression
      Or does the depression itself independently cause some kind of stress response in the body that leads to the lunula disappearing, like maybe cortisol being high all the time makes them go away.
