I want to ask. Whether there is or is not luluna (crescent on kuu) indicates a person’s level of health. What if I don’t have a scythe at all, it’s only on my thumb and even then it’s almost gone. Am I unwell? How to get the crescent mark back?

Hi Pipitsulistiar,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

The crescent at the base of the nail is called the lunula. The lunula is actually part of the nail root. The lunula contains a matrix that plays an important role in nail growth. So, even if your nail is removed, the lunula will still survive, so the nail can still grow back.


The condition of the lunula can indeed be an indicator of certain medical conditions. The absence of a lunula in one or more nails can occur in people with anemia (low blood hemoglobin). It does not appear that the lunula in this condition can occur due to the paler color of the surrounding area. So the lunula becomes invisible. In addition to anemia, the absence of a lunula can also occur in malnourished patients.


However, of course the condition of the lunula alone cannot be used as a benchmark in determining a person's health status. Because in many cases, there are also people who are born without the slightest lunula even though their body condition is healthy. In addition, the lunula can also become damaged, for example due to an injury during a manicure, or other nail treatments. Therefore, confirmation is needed with the results of other examinations, ranging from interviews, physical examinations, or other supporting examinations, such as laboratories, x-rays, and so on.


That's our explanation. More details, you can consult directly with the doctor at the nearest facility, yes..


I hope this helps.
