Female | 19

I am a 19 year old female, I have noticed some discoloration in my hand finger nails the tip is red rest of the nail is white, I searched on google and it says that it might be an indication of heart Or kidney disease, in the past I have suffered from kidney infection and nothing more though I have heard from other doctors that I have less blood in my body, I feel perfectly healthy, but I'm worried about what may be going on, what should I do? What could it be?

It doesn't necessarily mean you have a specific condition. The red tip and white base on your fingernails may be caused by factors such as trauma, nail biting, or even normal variation in nail pigmentation. Regarding your past kidney infection and having less blood in your body, its best to discuss these concerns with your doctor.
