Why are my nails soft and pliable?


Leave the archive and view this page in the standard design: soft nails



After I had to realize today that no gel sticks on my nails, I had it all removed. My nail aunt doesn't know what to do next. My natural nails are so super soft ... flexible like rubber and I also have longitudinal grooves in them. Impossible to grow, my nails tear. My calcium and iron levels are normal, but I have only recently reached my comfortable dose.
Am I alone with that, or could that also be a sign of Hashi?

.... have you ever had a biotin deficiency test? That was it for me!

Best regards,
Jessica

Hello double w

I started taking zinc as recommended in the book "Living with Hashimoto".

My fingernails have become much stronger since then and the grooves are also decreasing.

But what I am most happy about is that my fingernails no longer tear sideways. That bothered me a lot and was often painful.

I've actually suffered from these extremely soft nails since I was a child.
For about 20 years they have been tearing sideways ... especially in winter.
Artificial nails, gel or nail polish never lasted.
Towards the end of 20 my thyroid had negative effects for the first time. My neck was thick and I had it checked out. At that time only a slight ÜF was found. Presumably I just had a recent SD inflammation at the time.
Hashi was only discovered almost 2 years ago. By now my thyroid was pretty small and I was on the floor.
I started taking zinc back in 2004. At that time, my hair fell out massively and had wound healing disorders. My skin became infected in winter and nothing helped. A shortly before made examination of the SD showed again only a slight ÜF. So I put my hopes in the intake of zinc (15mg + histidine).
The hair loss actually decreased and wound healing improved significantly. The problem with the fingernails unfortunately persists to this day.
At the moment I'm very poorly adjusted and my TSH is way too high, but even when it was better, I couldn't see any positive changes in my nails.


Hello double w,

that's exactly what my son recently told me.
He was diagnosed with Hashi in Oct. 2007. It is not set correctly yet.
is it related to the setting? Or is there any deficiency?
I dont know. We'll take care of it sometime.

All the best Leni

Hello double W,

Brittle or soft nails

External causes: frequent washing, contact with degreasing substances and household chemicals as well as frequent use of nail polish and nail remover.

Symptoms: Deficiency in various vitamins and minerals e.g. deficiency in vitamin A, vitamin B complex, biotin, calcium and iron. Thyroid disease can also lead to brittle or soft nails.

Maybe you can have that checked out;)

Hello Wencke,

i had the exact same problem with super soft nails: eek:

My nail aunt always got a crisis when I opened up there: rolleyes: - Oooooooh- I've never seen sooooo soft nails! And I also had the finest transverse grooves!
Well - as soon as a nail broke off me (and that happened all the time) I nibbled off the others right away: redface:

Ever since I started taking 150 µg T4 + 30 µg T3 and a high-dose zinc preparation as well as B vitamins have been mine
Fingernails really great after years! Incredibly strong and break-resistant + I'm slowly getting a grip on the transverse grooves ...

Just be patient - that will be fine;)

best regards
Pookie
