Make sure your diet has adequate levels of foods that contain Vitamin A and E. Also make sure you are spending some time in the sun each day. Vitamin D is important as well. Has there been any major weight loss in the past few months or any major stress event?

You may also want to visit a dermatologist and make sure you do not have a nail fungus as well.

Being underweight can inhibit hair growth, as well as affecting the nails and skin. If you been underweight and low on energy for the last 5 years, you need to find a new physician and go for a complete physical. Make sure that there is no underlying condition causing your problems. Also make sure that you are not suffering from depression. If you are, you need to get treatment along with regular counselling to deal with diet, lifestyle, and psychological issues.
