A few fingernails have changed color (grayish) and some weird vertical grooves have developed. Along with that the skin around my nails is tearing, so
I'm under the impression that I have a vitamin deficiency of some kind. What kinds of vitamin deficiencies are related to fingers/fingernails?

Possibly vitamin E, or Vitamin D, Iron and Calcium too. Unfortunately there are a lot of vitamins that could be. I would suggest getting blood work done they can tell you where you might be lacking.

actually, i had some blood work done. here are my red flag areas:
- cholesterol a couple points out of healthy range
- blood sugar "high risk"
- iron low (especially folate)
- kidney function (needs more water and protein)

Oh Iron deficiency could truly be it. Do they have you taking an iron supplement?

Vitamin C, D, Calcium

if you google your own question there are plenty of resources willing to tell you how you all sorts of terrible things. You could go see your doctor if you are truly concerned though. Assuming your doctor does not google answers to things in front of you like mine does.

Grey nails can be caused by edema, arthritis problems, malnutrition, post-operative effects, glaucoma, lung problems, emphysema, cardio-pulmonary disease. Vertical ridges may be associated with kidney disorders, aging, anemia, or the tendency to develop arthritis.
