Nail clubbing, curved nails or deformed fingers means trouble

People with curved nails (or nail clubbing) or deformed fingers or toes, may have lung disease, heart disorders or other problems if they are not born with them (nail clubbing).

Normal people will have a diamond shape gap between 2 fingers or toes as in A. If there is no gap as in B, it means the finger nails are curved, or nail clubbing.
