common nail thickness


Many assume that all nails are the same, but in truth, there is significant discrepancies in nail size. Factors such as age, gender, physical wellbeing, and seasonal changes can (all) influence the width of an individual’s nail. In this article, let’s inspect the general nail thickness between genders, and explore how age and fitness level might alter the thickness of nails.

Nails comprise three essential aspects: the nail plate, the bed below it, and the root in possession of it. The nail plate is the hard shell that acts as a shield from harm, while the bed beneath offers a cushiony enclosure. Lastly, the root attaches the finger and nail together.

Despite the average thickness of a nail being 2.5mm, men tend to have a notably heftier version, around 3mm thick. Further, age also has an effect on nail thickness; it appears older adults have more diminutive nails when compared to younger adults.

When it comes to fingernail thickness, health status certainly plays a role. Diabetes and psoriasis can cause nails to grow thicker, as can the act of carrying a baby in the womb. In other words, pregnant women can expect to see an increase in their nail size.

During the changing of the seasons, one thing that often varies is the thickness of your nails. When the cold months arrive, they tend to be thicker, this is due to the lack of sunlight for the nails, causing them to grow at a slower rate.

Generally speaking, the breadth of nail sizes and thicknesses is vast. Typically, women’s nails measure 2.5mm, while men’s possess a slightly greater heft at 3mm. Still, factors such as age, health status, and season can all contribute to variances in thickness.
