    hello,nail conditions are best diagnosed when seen physically by a doctor who is a dermatologist.the white lines in nails can be due to a number of conditions such as previous trauma, calcium deficiency, fungal infections, a dermatological condition called psoriasis etc.it can also be Muehrcke's Lines due to low albumin in the body.pls see a dermatologist for proper evaluation.
