Nail Disorders

Thin, brittle nails is a common condition that tends to affect more women than men.

It is generally caused by genetics or aging, however it can also be caused by conditions such as nail psoriasis or nail fungus.

In some instances, brittle nails may be an indicator of an underlying health issue.

Dr. Sleep treats nail disorders by first ruling out any medical condition that may be contributing to the condition and by protecting your nails from any harsh environmental factors such as chemicals.

Anti-fungal medication may be used to eliminate nail fungus.
