  • Have you considered fructose intolerence? Similar to lactose intolerence, but in this case, the body responds to fructose ingestion. You might have flatulence/gas, but it also shows up as ridges and flaking on the fingernails. Try Googling it. Good luck.

Appreciate any responses out there...thanks!Most will say that ridges are protein or iron deficiency. Several B Vitamins such as Biotin may be involved. Start doing nutritionals and eat more nutritious foods and see if that helps.
