Does the loss of bone mineral density have anything to do with constant breaking of toenails?

In brief: Not directly

Bone density changes should not affect the toe nails as they are not made if bone.
There are, however, systemic medical conditions that can cause loss in bone density and characteristic changes in the nails as well. A good medical checkup would probably be a good place to start.
