Abstract The concentrations of Cd, Cr, Cu, Mn, Ni, Pb, and Zn were estimated in hair and nails of urban residents of New Delhi. Particularly, hair levels of Cu and Mn in hypertensive males, Cr and Zn in hypertensive females, and Zn in CHD and diabetic females, and nail levels of Zn in CHD and hypertensive females were significantly lower than controls. Thus, it is observed that there exists some positive correlation between element levels in hair and nails and CHD, hypertension, and diabetes of these subjects.
