Do my nails show that I have kidney disease?

I`m 23 years old male, and in last couple of days I noticed that my nails are half white and half pink. I found on Internet that this half-half color indicate kidney failure. I don`t have any other symptoms of kidney diseases. Is this true and could this be sing of kidney failure?

Thanks for your question.

In my opinion does not seem to be the case.

Signs of renal failure may include:

Decreased urine output, although occasionally urine output remains normal
Fluid retention, causing swelling in your legs, ankles or feet
Drowsiness
Shortness of breath
Fatigue
Confusion
Nausea
Seizures or coma in severe cases
Chest pain or pressure

Good luck
