Avatar n tn Changes in the fingernails can be due to a variety of malabsorption syndromes. Iron deficiency anemia can also lead to fingernail changes. Finally, more widespread diseases like Crohn's disease and celiac disease may have fingernail changes as one of their symptoms. I would discuss diagnosis of these conditions with your personal physician. A blood count, iron studies, endoscopy, and stool tests looking for malabsorption are amongst the tests that should be considered in the evaluation.

Avatar m tn Pronounced vertical ridges Nails are very soft (they haven't broken or split yet) Pale nail beds with band of pink on distal edge (also a wavy whitish line just near where the pale meets the pink) Lunulas gone except on thumbs and right index finger Nail beds seem to be receding from distal end (Note: I'm also noticing these symptoms on my toenails but they are not as pronounced) Here is an image of a few of the worst of my nails, immediately after trimming them: http://i.imgur.com/41CNr.
Avatar f tn Many vitamin deficiencies cause ridges on fingernails, as the body's production of the materials in the nail is interrupted. Eating a healthier diet and supplementing with vitamins can help clear up the ridges; for especially strong, health nails you can eat gelatin, which will also benefit your hair. If improvements to your diet do not resolve the ridges on your fingernails, you may have a disorder which interrupts the absorption of nutrients by your body, and you should see a doctor.

Avatar m tn If the nails are yellow with the ridges, this is likely to be a fungal infection. Ridges in the nails with white patches can indicate psoriasis. Horizontal ridges on the fingernails are the ones to be concerned about. Like mkh89 says, anyone can get a build up of tar and this has nothing to do with having diabetes. You need to brush your teeth in the morning and before going to bed and also floss.

Avatar f tn I take magnesium chelated with amino acids. There are various types of magnesium and some are poorly absorbed such as magnesium oxide with only a 4% absorption rate! I found a couple of articles with info on nail ridges and IST.... Steady Health - Ridges In Fingernails... "Reasons Behind Fingernail Ridges First and foremost, certain deficiencies in our organism, malnutrition as well as some other causes, may all trigger the appearance of these ridges upon a person's fingernails.
Avatar n tn I hate everyone and everything happening in the world, my feet and hands are cold but I feel clammy in the head around the stomach and in my elbow pits, my muscles feel like they are tight all the time and as a result have neck aches and body aches, my heart races a bit, very nervous, smell smoke although no one smokes, have vertical ridges in my fingernails. I will be seeing my doctor in the next 10 days but I just can't stand the way I feel. I am miserable.
Avatar n tn Since then I've noticed deep vertical ridges in all my fingernails. Some sites suggested thryoid problems and the more I read, the more I started thinking that maybe this is my problem. I eat like a horse. Anything and everything but never gain any weight. My weight has been pretty constant for the last ten years although I eat considerably more these days. Another thing is that I had radiation treatment for acne as a teenager.

Avatar f tn At times my chest is tight and breathing feels as if I am trying to pull air through a straw. Nails and skin I have vertical ridges in my fingernails and they are brittle and break off easily in horizontal strips.. almost like they peel off. I break out in small blisters on my hands and arms. My fingers will rash and be raw around my rings for no reason and then it goes away just as fast. I am noticing dry red patches the size of quarters on all areas of my skin.

Avatar n tn I do not understand, either, why I felt worse after I started taking levothyroxine than I did before I started taking it, but I did. Either there was something about beginning to support my thyroid gland's struggles by taking T4 that allowed some of the classic symptoms of hypothyroidism to blossom for the first time, or it was a coincidence of timing and I would have felt worse whether I was taking medication or not.
