GUILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — For a quick health checkup, look at your nails, says Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Beth Collins, M.D. Dry, brittle nails could be a sign you have a thyroid disease. Rippled or pitted nails may be an early indicator of psoriasis or arthritis. And if you spot a dark line below the nail, see a doctor right away because it could be melanoma.
