Calcium deposits finger nails

Just really something i have noticed.

August 14 no white marks on my fingernails. Stomach pain gets very bad that week. I start treatment for h pylori on the 11th sept.

White marks on my nails lots of calcium deposits is what i have read. Up until the start of November. Got hair analysis test last week it says i jave extremely high calcium levels.

Wondering if there is correlation between high calcium in hair and nails and the stomach problems -low acid and antibiotic treatment. See a nutritional dr today going to mention the hair analysis teat to him. Ask what it might mean

He prob guess the sane as me

Jump1,

The white spots on nail you notice are not caused by a calcium deficiency. These white spots in fingernails are called “leukonychia” and are very common. Most of the time the white spots simply are a sign of some past injury to the matrix (base) of your nails.

I suggest you check the hair mineral analysis by having a serum calcium test. If your GP won't check you can order blood tests via thyroiduk.org.uk/tuk/testin...

I def didnt injure the nails. So this is not the cause.
