Although almost everyone knows that fingerprint ridge patterns remain constant and unchanging throughout life (which is why they are so useful to law enforcement) even professionals involved in dermatoglyphics research are often unaware of the changeable nature of the actual height of the ridges themselves. There are a series of surprising correlations between changes to the height of the ridge pattern and links to gluten intolerance found in diseases such as celiac and to certain sensitivities to proteins in the diet called lectins.

This encourages me to test my fingerprints again after following the protocol for 9 months to see the improvement rather than just feeling great.   8)

Many smooth objects slip out of my hands.  For example, it's hard for me to slide a tissue box off a shelf without using two hands, or pull a credit card from my wallet.  I'm guessing that this is a side effect of low ridges.  It sure makes life difficult.

Immagin such a simple test to KNOW what might be wrong?   and so easy to fix?  and if it did not work, then at least There was no harm done?? Hot news!

Here is my experience in before/after situations with this and I love the concept. Thanks for teaching me this Dr D.

One example is my own. I took my fingerprints in Feb 2010 and noticed lines mainly in the thumbs, index and middle fingers. I then followed an almost strict gluten free diet with Polyflora, Intrinsa and Deflect. By the 26th of June the lines had virtually dissapeared. I then finished off the supplements and continued with Polyflora that i don't like to be without.  

Then came summer in Brittany... and I indulged in "crêpes bretonnes", "far breton" and other specialities made with wheat. I also ate more dairy than usual.

I then took my fingerprints a few days ago (7/10/10) and there they were again all those white lines!

So I guess healing the gut can happen fast as well as deterioration of the gut.

Another axample is my son. He is 32. As a child he had asthma and luckily we were living in England at the time and in the next village lived a doctor practicing what at the time was quite revolutionary: nutritional medecine. He found out(1984) that my son had gluten and dairy intolerance.

So since age 6 he is virtually off those two food types. As soon as I found out about ER4YT (1996) he has been following his O then O non-secretor diet.

Today there is not a single white line on his fingertips! I wonder if he has even  ever had any.

I am awaiting for the results from a client and will keep you posted here. She is taking the supplements mentioned above and nearly gluten free.

So are white vertical lines appearing on your fingerprints necessarily an indication of glutin intolerance?  I just tried taking my own fingerprints at home today (what a mess!), and it appears that there are white lines on every fingerprint on my left hand, and white lines on the thumb and index fingers on my right hand.  I need to practice so I can get clearer prints, but my ridges appear high enough if I don't over ink.  The white lines are very clear even if the whorls and loops are a bit smudgy from my inexpert technique.  I'm tempted to go down to a local police station and ask them to fingerprint me.

I watched a video about fingerprinting, and noticed that the thumb is done away from you, not toward you, as the fingers are, and the very tips are not involved just the flat surface behind the nail down to the first knuckle.  I was not aware, of all of this before, so I will be doing mine over.

i'm trying to understand more about white lines.
though Dr D's article at the beginning of the thread helped me a lot showing some photos, I a kind of need other "white lines" to compare with.
does anyone know where i can find them?
thank you so much
i'm lost with ink, fingerprints, pencil..........what a beautiful mess ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

and somebody who took  chemotherapy won't have the same fingerprints as orginally! :X

Yeah, you got me curious to see if my white lines have diminished, though I’m not 100% compliant.  I have reduced a good amount of gluten in the past 2 months.

What Dr. D is referring to is horizontal lines (side to side).

Can you tell us more about this?  To your knowledge does chemo effect the white lines?

Chemo can damage the intestinal lining.  Often N.D.'s will give them L-Glutamine to help rebuild.

About 15 years ago we needed fingerprints for our drivers license and I had so many vertical lines on my thumbs that they could not get it. I have noticed that the lines are very deep now on all my fingers but thought it was just age.  I have for a long time realised that I am not best friends with gluten, but a few months ago I just threw all caution to the wind and started to eat a lot of wheat products. A few weeks ago I ended up with headaches for days and decided to test my blood pressure, it was so high that the dr put me on medication. I do not want to take it and decided to take out my Eat right for your type book again and saw that being an O I really should not eat wheat. I cut out all wheat the past week and my BP is most of the time back to normal I am curios to see what is going to happen with the vetical lines on my fingers

vertical lines are more hormone related

This will require persistence for a while, but in several years you should get the fingerprints back - at least see a difference for the better...

How, if at all, does Reynaud's affect white lines?

My white lines seem to be much worse in the winter and they are vertical rather than horizontal.  My fingertips are almost shriveled up during the winter.
