What do flattened fingernails typically signify? - Answers.com

Yes, fingernails come from our human body. Our fingernails are made of the same material known as keratin, which is in animal hooves and horns. Now if these animal hooves or horns are eaten, they are digested. So yes, our fingernails are easily digestible.

What causes flattened fingernails? - Answers.com

It seems that most answers for this include Vitamin B12 deficiencies. B12 is not always available even if taken as a pill because the stomach doesn;t have "intrinsic factor" an enzyme that makes B!@ available . B12 is stored in the liver and the easy way to get is is by a self administered monthly injection, just into a muscle. Other views on flattened nails seem to thin k it might be blood circulatory problem, see Raynaud's disease. Iron and zinc are mentioned too as being deficient. Overall there seems to be no clear answer, so if the nails have become flattened over the last few months, go get a check and a comprehensive blood panel including vitamin and hormones.
