Brief Answer:
Anemia to check out by complete blood work

Detailed Answer:
Hi back,

Thank you for providing the requested information.

1. Chronic hepatitis won't cause nail changes unless cirrhosis is present.

2. Once again, I do not see any worrisome changes on your nails. Anemia can be excluded by a complete blood work, and by measuring the levels of iron and blood ferritin and transferin.

Otherwise, everything seems OK.

All the best!
