I was diagnosed approx, 3 yrs ago as having NAFLD, and in which no meds, nor anything was given to me, for understanding this disease, therefore, i have been reading alot online, then a yr ago, was diagnosed with Diabetes Insipidus, ( mispelled I know), in which is causing me alot of problems to deal with, and as well as having Familial Tremors ( form of Parkinsons Disease ), IBD, as well as alot of the digestive problems too. I am now experiencing a few of my fingernails are turning white, like half the nail is turning white, looks more like the nail bed is half turning white and other half is light pink, with the ridge ( meaning the top part of the nail, where I use nail clippers to shorten the nail ) is a dark lined red color, I have been trying to find out what is causing this, and what can be done to understand the reason for this, and is this a sign of Cirrohsis ( mispelled too ) of the Liver. If anyone knows, please let me know, cuz this is really worrying me soo much. Thank you for all replies.
