Reply To: Paper thin fingernails

Mine are not paper thin but a few of them persistently split at the ends once they get to a certain length. They also curve down once they get longer than my fingers.

I’m not sure that it’s GBS per se; rather a sign of our body’s general health. I wouldn’t be surprised if the trauma/meds plays a part in that, as well.

Think I read that these sorts of things are indicative of a deficiency in certain minerals or vitamins. Have you researched potential solutions? Seems to me that splitting is related to zinc but I can’t remember for sure. I’m sure that there will be something related to thin fingernails, if you search a bit. And if it is a mineral/vitamin deficiency, it shouldn’t hurt you to try remedying it.

Just throwing that out there for consideration.
