After finishing the NaNa anime some time ago I'd decided to just let that be the end of it for me since the manga is unfinished, but the other day I came across some manga spoilers on the Wiki and... good lord.

Is it advisable to start from where the anime left off or is it better to start over from the beginning? Is it available digitally in English anywhere?

I think Viz have released it digitally, yes.

I don't see the harm in reading the manga from where the anime left off, but somebody who's read and watch it can suggest otherwise. I stopped watching the anime at Episode 22 and then wound up reading all of what Viz put out.

There's a few chapters that I haven't read yet that were never compiled into book form, but I honestly don't have the heart to seek them out, with where the story stopped. One would assume Yazawa made a full recovery but it's hard to say with so little information on what happened.

NANA is available on Comixology and the Amazon Kindle. I both watched the anime and read the manga a very long time ago. IIRC the anime follows the manga relatively closely. The manga still leaves you hanging at the end, but I think it gave a little more development and maturation to Hachi which was important especially since I remember that some anime only watchers hated her with a passion. I've always been curious about the live-action version, what it covers relative to the manga and how good is the music?

Thanks. Guess I'll see about starting at volume 13 eventually.
