Diagnose your symptoms now!

  • check your overall health status
  • have a doctor review your case (optional)
  • identify any nutritional deficiencies

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose pitted fingernails, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
