Pale Fingernails, Lines & Palms may provide Clues for Lack of Red Blood Cells!

Pale fingernails (nail bed pallor).

In an earlier post the medical significance of nail changes was described. Especially nail color is known for displaying significant features. One of those features is the presence of ‘pale nails’ (a.k.a. nailbed pallor), which can indicate anemia, or the decrease in the number of red blood cells. But palmar skin– & palmar line color may signal the same clue!

Red blood cells take care of carying oxygen to the body’s organs & tissues via the blood stream in the circulary system. Therefore it is important that the body has enough red blood cells. The amount of red blood cells correlates with the amount of hemoglobine in the blood stream.

Normal palmar crease color.


Studies have indicated that various body characteristics can provide significant clues that relate to the presence of anemia, including: the tongue, inner eyelid & the hands!

Pale palms (palmar pallor).


Last year (2010) a study from India in 390 anemia patients revealed that a ‘pale tongue’ (tongue pallor) is the most reliable predictor in patients with very low hemaglobine levels. However, in patients with only slightly lower hemaglobine levels ‘pale fingernails’ and ‘pale palms’ revealed to provide more reliable clues than the tongue!


Interestingly, a 2000 study has revealed that ‘pale hand lines’ (palmar crease pallor) was only seen in 4 out of 61 anemia patients, and not seen at all in any of the 42 controls!

Obviously, pallor in adults is a sign for anemia. Obviously, pallor in a clinical sign of anaemia. And the severity correlates with the amount of pinkness of palm. It is graded as mild, moderate and severe.But how about the hands of children?


In the hands of children younger than 2 years palmar pallor, has a sensitivity of 58%, and the highest sensitivity to detect moderate anemia as compared to other anatomic sites. If the palmar creases are pale it indicates severe pallor – a reliable indicator for medical palm reading. The common causes of severe pallor are haemorrhage, haemolysis, aplastic anaemia and shock.

Additionally the Nail Tutor reports that a ‘missing lunula’ is another fingernail characteristic which signals anemia:

FINGERNAILS – A barometer of your (past) health!

with 3 comments

Healthy fingernails.

Your fingernails provide a window to your health, and they are like the ‘rings of a tree’. They provide clues about your health during the last six months: because that is about the time nails need to grow out of the fingers (a fingernail grows about 0.1 mm per day).

A healthy fingernail is characterized by: a smooth, rounded nail plate with a rectangular shape (at the corners slightly rounded). It’s color is pink, and at least the thumb requires to have a white crescent shaped lunula – in most people the lunula is not seen on the pinky fingers (some people have lunulae in all fingers where they take at most 1/3 of the pink area in the nail plate).


Nail changes often reflect changes in the body. Medical science has identified & described literally hundreds different types of nail changes, and quite some of them have a highly significant correlation with the development of all kinds of diseases. But usually nail changes only rarely have a significance for a specified disease.

But nail changes can also indicate high stress, physical traumas, hormone changes, and even an unhealthy food pattern. But often it takes some time to monitor the nature of the changes seen in the nails!

And there Multi-Perspective Palm Reading can become involved, and even play a decisive role in the diagnosis process of the nail changes. Because Multi-Perspective Palm Reading describes the significance of nail changes in specified diseases, plus an overview of the other typical hand characteristics in those diseases. And therefore it can become very helpfull to find the true cause of nail changes when there are multiple options left according ‘the science of  the fingernails’.

Dr. Mehmet Oz – who became for his appearances in The Oprah Winfrey Show from 2004 until 2009, has presented a 6-minute Masterclass introduction to how your fingernails can provide you a window to your health, titled:
