My nails are really bad...mostly my thumbs.?
They have very deep ridges in them that you can see very prominently. This is mostly apparent on my thumbs. It also looks like a look a knife to one of them and made slits in the nail. Someone told me I may be low on iron, so I started taking iron pills but to no avail. Any suggestions of why this might be? It's not a pretty sight!

Sometimes the problem is an indication of something more severe like abnormal kidney function or even more common as stress related. More often it's poor nutrition. You should see a doctor for some basic tests to determine the problem. There are several sites below that might be helpful to you.

here is a link to an article by good housekeeping on finger nails and what different looks of them can mean. I would say to visit a doctor as your ridges are so deep. The best of health to you.
