Hi all… backing up a bit… Dr D… I started with my PCP re my nails. He said he knew something about fungus, but I needed to see a Dermatologist.
Do any of you have problems with liver functioning/ cholesterol? Unfortunately Mast Cell Diseases can have a negative impact on our liver. My Cholesterol is screwed up… low HDL and high Triglycerides. Tryptase breaks down HDL before it can do its job of helping to clear stuff out. And it seems poor liver functioning is implicated in some of these nail problems.
Hi again, Honestly, it doesn’t sound like nail fungus to me. But that is worth about what you paid for it! Cholesterol — you are SO right. I’ve always had bragable cholesterol levels. Not anymore! It’s high now, as is true with most of us with mast cell issues (even teens). I’ll be eager to see if mast cell treatment brings it back down. Liver function can be affected by mast cells, and can cause liver cysts and liver enzymes to go nuts (and cause liver enlargement). How are you doing with that?
Gentle hugs, 🙂 Diana
