What causes the ridges and white spots on my nails?

Most commonly white spots are the result of a mild trauma to your nail bed, a possible side effect of medications or a sign of dehydration.  Ridges are usually caused by a variation in the rate of cell turnover, which slows with age, and is usually genetic.  It is always a good idea to pay attentions to changes or abnormalities in your nails, and to consult your doctor if you are concerned.
