What Do Your Nails Say About Your Health?

Your nails and health

Want a quick check up on the state of your health?  Check your finger or toes nails .

If the the nail beds are in the pink, so are you.  You want nails that are semi-transparent, light pink and intact.

Congratulations if that describes your finger and toe nails.  You may want to head off for the salon to get a pedicure or manicure to celebrate.  It’s great way to get a little pampering.

If not, may want to head off to the doctor’s office instead to find out if you have a problem.

For starters, something other than pink could be a sign of diabetes, cirrhosis of the liver, kidney failure, tuberculosis or rheumatoid arthritis and this list is just for starters.

Fun list, eh?  It gets worse.
