    Default Paper thin brittle shredding fingernails

    My immunologist said that nail problems are a symptom of auto immune skin diseases. Do you think that's true? My sister has bad fingernail problems too, but she has ulcerative colitis, which is also an autoimmune problem, but she has no skin problem that I know of.

    Anyone else have bad nails?

    My nail beds are really rounded - they look funny compared to other people's. My Naturopath said that rounded nail beds can be a sign of kidney problems in Eastern Medicine. I was having Lupus Nephritis.

    I hope your nails get better soon!

    Thanks Missy! 8) That's interesting, I didn't know there can be a connection to the kidneys!
