Nail conditions can be chronic and disabling, and may be limited to the nail or linked to underlying diseases.  Dana Stern, M.D., and Yoon-Soo Cindy Bae, M.D., are leading dermatologists who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of nail disorders of the fingers and toes.

Nail Facts: Nails are made up of layers of a hardened protein called keratin, which is also present in hair and skin. The appearance of your nails can often reflect your overall health, with healthy nails being smooth and consistent in color.

Nail growth is affected by disease, nutrition, medications, trauma, and aging.  Moreover, changes in the nail, such as thickening, altered shape, or discoloration, can signal underlying health problems including immune system disorders, organ failure, or metabolic syndromes.
