Our body has many peculiar indicators that testify to the state of our health, except that not all signals can be understood by us. One of these indicators is our nails, and this post will tell you what signals they give us and what they mean.

Fading and fading1
According to Julia Zi, a dermatologist at the New York Medical Center, discoloration or pallor of the nails, which was not previously observed, may indicate problems with the nail plate. “If such spots appear, this can serve as the primary signs of the development of melanoma of the nail plate,” the doctor explains.

Yellowish tint2
“If the nails have acquired a yellowish tint, this may indicate the presence of psoriasis,” the doctor notes. Also, according to some experts, the yellow color of the nails indicates the emerging problems with the liver.

Bluish tint3
No less disturbing and this signal - the appearance of a bluish tint (cyanosis).According to Dr. Andrea Weil from Harvard Medical School, this may indicate a low level of hemoglobin, problems with blood circulation and the respiratory system.

White spots4
They can appear and disappear. Many prefer not to attach any importance to this. And in vain. Small white spots of different shapes indicate a lack of zinc or calcium in the body. Moreover, if horizontal white stripes began to appear on the nails, this indicates a kidney disease, warns Julia Zi. This state has a separate name - leukonychia.

Lateral "grooves"5
According to the doctor, the presence of small depressions on the surface of the nail may indicate that a person is constantly under severe stress. The second reason is a metabolic disorder. And finally, the third - a nail injury.

Longitudinal lines6
Most often, thin longitudinal lines on the nails are found in older people, due to this phenomenon age-related changes in the body. However, sometimes the stripes can occur in young people. In this case, the appearance of longitudinal lines may indicate that a person does not use enough liquid.
