i googled it and did find one thing that mentioned that it was normal for this to occur as one ages (but i'm 20!) and as i'm sure we all know here, just because it's normal for our society doesn't make it good! the other info i was able to find suggested either pituitary dysfunction or thyroid dysfunction (half of what popped up said hypothyroid, the other half hyperthyroid.) the lunula on my pinky nail on my left hand is almost entirely gone and isn't symetrical, all the rest are clearly visible but seem to be smaller than i recall them being before. anyone know anything more? i've suspected thyroid problems, have been adding kelp or dulse flakes to my food once a day (sometimes only a few times a week or less, though.) but it seems like i never fit the bill for either hyper- or hypo- thyroid. TIA!
