    Default White nails.

    Anyone had this?

    I have hyperemesis so thought it was vitamin deficiencies, but my gp hasn't seen it before.

    I got a blood test to check vitamin levels.

    Dr Google tells me it's liver disease.
    Freaking out.

    I haven't, but nails can tell a person *so* much about their health it is quite unbelievable. No more Doctor Google(Although I can't talk, I am the worst at doctor googling But I would get it checked out at the doctor for sure.

    Dr thought calcium deficient, but really doesn't know as she hadn't seen it before.

    Are your nails fully white? Or white spots?

    I have had white spots on my nails for as long as I remember. My spots grow with the nail. My GP told me it was a zinc deficiency but nothing to worry about. I just wear nail polish all the time to cover it

    Hmm, if she doesn't know, then even more of a reason for her to look into it. My son has the deficiency white spots on the nails. But if it is fully white, then they need to look into it.

    Do they look really Pale? Like the white colour is coming from the skin underneath? Or is it deffo the nail? If it is like the colour is coming underneath that can be a sign of anemia. When are your bloods back?

    I'm not sure tbh, they are just all white. When I press on the nail you can't see the blood flow.

    Probably Friday or Monday.

    More dr google tells me anaemic (haven't had red meat or iron on 4mths).
    Diabeties, this might mean gest diabeties?
    Malnutrition, this is likely sure to my inability to eat. It is not indicted on ketone tests though
