Recently, within the last month, I have noticed my thumb nails (especially)and my pointer fingers are getting a ridge. Kind of like what I've seen when someone has smashed their finger several times and damaged the nail bed. What could the deficiency be? I've heard it was one, but I don't remember what

is your nail black or blue?
or just ridges. both can be a sign of injury or illness. if you get manicures frequently it could be a sign that the pusher that the manicurist uses is pressing too hard on the nail bed and causing cell damage.

All ten of my fingernails have ridges going vertical (up and down). The thumb and index nails being worse than the others. Can a low thyroid relate to this condition?

Common opinion amongst learned healers is silica is not being absorbed with in the body. Get into calcium and silica rich foods. Supplement if you feel you need more. One of the richest sources of fingernail improvement foods is Agar agar. You make jelly out of it. Many have said after eating Agar agar everyday for two weeks was nothing short of miraculous. Fruit jelly or coconut jelly, or what ever your imagination can invent. And you get beautiful nails.

My nails break easily. This has been going on for about 2 years now, with increasing frequency in recent months. And all my nails have "striations" -- a lot of ridges that run from the cuticle out to the end of the nail. I can hardly shove my hands into my pockets anymore without snagging and breaking a piece off a nail.
