Hi. I saw your post after scanning what seems to be a personal conversation between a few. Seeking close to my symptoms is a battle in and of itself.
Nails was yours subject. Brittle nails with ridges.
I do Not have the ridges. But brittle Yes.
Also at both thumbs where the nails begins to extend. If I do not keep them clipped they tear straight across.
I have often thought, that this is a tell tell to so.e underlying deeper health related issue, but so far have never asked or even spoken of it to anyone really outside of family.
Do your nails tear??

They tear somewhat, but mostly grow square and have deep ridges.

@lisash, @swatzki. Amazing, I just got back from having my hands and feet done. The technician showed me how much stronger my nails are now. They were thin, brittle and breaking several months ago. The only thing I have changed is the tapering off an anti-depressant. I haven't researched that as a possibility. Do either of you have any knowledge of medications that might be contributing to your tearing and brittleness? Be safe and free of suffering. Chris
