i have vertical ridges in all of my nails and very dry cuticles. is this a vitamin deficiency? my MD says not to concern myself, but it seems symptomatic of an imbalance to me.

Dear Anonymous,

Vertical Nail Ridges are common-- here's an explanation for you: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/nails/AN00591

It doesn't hurt to take a multi-vitamin which is good for your overall health but the vertical nail ridges alone are not indicative of any serious health concern.

Best Wishes,
