Does anyone know what kind of deficiency or imbalance is indicated by verticle ridges in your nails?

No, I don't know, but would like to know as my ridges are vertical but not very pronounced, not like my sons who are definately more pronounced. I am the gluten intolerant and he has not been diagnosed.

Also my nails are still pretty brittle after a year of being gluten free, but they are probably a bit stronger than they were. Do they ever come right?

Mine were very thin before I went gluten-free and are much stronger now. When I take a calcium supplement they get even thicker but I'm really hit and miss with it. I take it after dinner because they say it is absorbed better at that time of day but I feel so full I don't like to take it. Maybe that is just psychological. I take Naturemade and know it's gluten-free but the tablets are so big and they're made to be taken 2 or 3 per day. I take another supplement same size earlier in the day and that doesn't bother me. My ridges are fairly pronounced right now.
