    Do nails normally stop growing?

    Is it normal for nail growth (especially toenails) to slow or even stop once a person reaches the age of 40? I'm about 41 and have noticed that my toenails hardly grow anymore, and it has me a little concerned as to whether it's normal or if it could be a symptom of a more serious problem.

    Hello Fitman40.

    I don't think it's normal for your nails to stop growing no matter what your age is. Maybe you're not getting adequate amounts of nutrients in your diet? In any case I think it would be wise to talk with your doctor about this.
