Known as Beau’s lines, horizontal indentations on your nails may be a sign of health issues such as diabetes or vascular problems. High fevers and zinc deficiencies can also cause Beau’s lines. Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and those suffering from Raynaud’s disease may get horizontal dents across their nails as well. It is time to start listening to what your nails are trying to tell you about your health!*
Many of us ignore irregularities on our nails, but they can be early signs of medical conditions such as circulatory problems, iron deficiencies, and even thyroid disease. Observe your nails often and do not hesitate bringing up concerns with your doctor.
