Answer

See the list below:

  • Examination of the skin and nails may indicate possible nutritional deficiencies.

  • Examination of the joints and skin may suggest connective tissue diseases.

  • A complete neurologic examination with particular attention to sensory disturbances may be supportive of a systemic disorder, such as diabetes or B12 deficiency.
