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.
I think this is very important — thanks for posting! I need to have my cholesterol checked, but meanwhile, many of us DO have issues with bad cholesterol, and many of us have “weird livers”. I hear a lot about liver fibrosis even in patients who never drink alcohol. This is a great point. Thank you for posting! 🙂
