is there a connection in celiac and curved down toe nails

Posted by Nicole

I have read this on a site and my son had curved down toe nails and now being on the diet for 3 months his nails no longer curve down.  They are not completely healthy but not curved down.

Hi Nicole! It is possible that the curved toe nails could have been due to vitamin deficiency. When a person has Celiac and there is flattening of the villi, and the body is unable to absorb much of the vitamins and nutrients consumed. After going gluten free, the body may regenerate the villi and absorb more nutrients. It sounds like the gluten free diet is working well with your son and his health is improving.  Good luck!
