When to see your doctor about brittle nails
Changes to nails may, of course, be nothing to do with menopause but caused by an underlying health condition. Talk to your doctor if diet and lifestyle changes don’t result in improved nail health.
And then there’s always HRT….
We think it’s unlikely you’d choose HRT just to improve your nails, but if you take it for other menopause symptoms, enjoy the added bonus that increased levels of collagen bring, improving skin, bone and nails.
The usual caveat here, that HRT is something to be discussed with your doctor. There are pros and cons to taking it. See our vlog, What is HRT? We don’t take a view. It’s for you to decide whether it’s for you or not.
