Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Weak or brittle nails are fairly common concerns for many women. The causes can be quite varied, from low thyroid or low iron to a fungal infection or low mineral intake.

Winter weather can also be a cause.

Talk with your health care provider about appropriate testing to pinpoint the cause.
