Question from Russia, Moscow:
I'm diabetic type 1 for 16 years, now 31 years old, female. My nails on my hands are splitting and cracking all the time in spite of consistent adoption of the best vitamin-mineral complexes. Is it associated with nerve damage? No one doctor here can give me an answer.
Multiple and varied skin lesions may be associated with diabetes besides nerve damage, but I’m not aware of any association of diabetes with fragile nails.
