Audience member Linda asks Dr. Oz why her nails are always breaking and brittle.
Dr. Oz answers that genetic factors and vitamin deficiencies could play into having thin nails. A lack of biotin (or vitamin B), an iron deficiency, or anemia can cause this as well. Dr. Oz encourages Linda to increase her intake by cooking food on an iron skillet, and/or by taking iron supplements with vegetables.
Audience member Charlene is experiencing pain throughout her body, and she asks Dr. Oz how one can diagnose Fibromyalgia (a common condition characterized by long-term, body-wide pain and tender points in joints, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues).
Dr. Oz says that Fibromyalgia is a diagnosis of exclusion, meaning that things are ruled out which cause pain. If there are certain issues where trauma preceeded the pain, if x-rays show before and after changes in the area of pain, if there are no hormone abnormalities, and if resting makes the pain worse, Fibromyalgia is a strong possibility.
Dr. Oz recommends that people afflicted with Fibromyalgia take complimentary medication, and try to get up and move around as much as possible, despite any pain that may result.
