13 Health Problems the Moons on Your Nails Warn You About

If you look at your nails, you will see light areas at the base. These are months or months. Changes in color, shape or size may not only indicate the presence of a disease but also a predisposition to it. Such diagnoses will help you notice the problem in time and take action.

Bright Side learned how to diagnose your health with the help of lunulae.

One finger changes a lunula


As a rule, a lunula on its small finger should not be nearly or completely discernible. It’s linked to the work of the kidneys, the small intestines and the heart. An increased lunula may be a result of high blood pressure.

The ring is responsible for the operation of the finger, reproduction and lymphatic systems. However, a visible lunula may give clues in digestive problems.

The middle finger is associated with the operation of the brain and cardiovascular system. The absence of a lunar may indicate vascular problems and high blood pressure.

The index finger may be lost or greatly reduced due to incorrect operation of the lunula, intestine, pancreas or chronic E.N.T. diseases.

The lunula on the thumb reflects the operation of the lung and spleen. This is the most visible to all and should not take more than 25% of the entire nail. When you have arterial hypertension, it can be significantly smaller or larger in smokers.

Extreme big lunulae

The Lunulae is considered to be large when it occupies one third (or more) of the nail. Cardiovascular system, heartbeat deterioration and low blood pressure problems.

Large athletes are often found in athletes and in persons whose profession is associated with physical activity. If a person is not involved in sports, the enlarged musculature may appear due to high levels of stress.

Small lunulae
Small lunulas that are barely visible behind the cuticle show low blood pressure and circulatory disorders. This may be a sign of a weak immune system, poor metabolism, or iron and B12 deficiency.

If the lunars are visibly separated from the rest of the nail plate by transverse lines, they indicate problems in blood sugar levels and in the possible development of diabetes.

Lunulae doesn’t look at all
Don’t panic if you can’t find Lunula on your own or your child’s nails. They are often invisible in children’s nails and appear over time. In some people, they never appear because of the physiological properties of the nail structure.

However, the sudden disappearance of the lunar is perceived by modern medicine as one of the symptoms of circulatory disorder. This study showed that absence of lunula is associated with thyroid gland disorders and vitamin B12 and iron deficiency.

Gray lunules show severe difficulties in fatigue, digestive disorders and nutrient absorption.

White lunulas are healthy and natural. The months should be lighter than the skin.

Purple lunulas are a sign of poor blood circulation and lack of oxygen in organs and tissues. Dizziness and headache often occur.

Pink (red) lunulae can show low physical activity and lung problems.

Black lunulas are a rare and extremely dangerous sign. As a rule, this is a sign of heavy metal poisoning.
