Do Your Toenails Grow Slowly?
Family Healthcare & Cardiac Center
Cardiovascular clinic with trusted cardiologist & vein specialists, offering wide range of vascular tests, imaging & treatments in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, NY.
If your foot is not getting enough blood flow, you may see that your toenails are growing more slowly. The artery that pumps blood to your leg and foot is partially blocked, so your foot isn’t getting enough of nutrients to make new nails. If only one leg is receiving poor circulation, it would make the toenails on that foot grow more slowly than the other.
You should be thinking about changes in your body and comparing the toenail growth on your left and right feet. It is not necessary to compare your toenail growth to other people’s.
Poor circulation is the most dangerous cause of slowed toenail growth, but it’s only one possibility. If it turns out that your circulation isn’t to blame, a podiatrist, or a cardiologist, can look for other causes like fungal infection or ingrown toenails.
