4 – Brittle Nails
When your nails easily chip, it can mean there is a problem with your nail bed (specifically the nail matrix where nails grow from) or the nutrients the nails need to grow. Nails are primarily made of keratin, and a diet low in protein and essential vitamins and minerals can cause nails to be brittle. [2]



5 – Onycholysis
A person with thyroid disease can have nails that are brittle and easily split from the nail bed. This also happens in psoriasis, along with damage to the entire nail. Splitting from the nail bed is called onycholysis. [2]
