paula Posted August 23, 2016 Report Share Posted August 23, 2016 I saw the article in the Economist and originally I was curious about the muffins because I love muffins (made by others) and I regularly make and eat waffles that are closer in composition to what I think would be in a vegeburger. Stumbling on all this I find the forums complicated (although it looks like key people are quite responsive) and this is why I am posting here. My burning question is can anyone shed light on my problem. My fingers redden at the cuticle and my fingernails die and fall off several times during and following each winter, this has happened the past three years. My BMI is 18.5 and I lost 20 percent of my body weight over the past 10 years. I am 63. I had 39 blood tests including autoimmune and nutrition and I am in perfect health other than slightly elevated blood pressure (154/94) at times, usually early morning if ever. I take 5mg amlodopene. Endocrinologist, rheumatologist, neurologist, dermatologist (Kaiser) all scratch their heads. My hair is beautiful. I dread winter because I feel powerless to stop the damage to my nails. Does anyone have any experience with this? I see some slight allusion to cold sensitivity in the forums but nothing about fingers. Also wondering, do you have to pay $50 to become a member?
