Nail color

Hello everyone

My grandmother's toe and fingernails have been a dark brown color ever since i was little. All her toenails are a even coat of brown and her fingernails are the same way but they are a little lighter brown. Her podiatrist says it isn't any kind of fungus or infection but she can't tell us why they would be that color. So i wanted to know if anyone could give me a reason to why her nails would be this color. Any info and thoughts would be great!

Thanks

Re: Nail color

Hello angie9,

If it's not fungus or an infection, maybe your grandmother isn't getting an adequate amount of nutrients her body needs? Perhaps her podiatrist could take a sample of your grandmother's nails and get some lab work done on it to determine what the cause is?
