Part Descriptions

LP14795-6   Zinc
A metallic element (Zn, atomic number 30 and atomic weight 65.38) necessary in the diet. It constitutes an essential part of many enzymes, and plays an important role in protein synthesis and in cell division. Zinc deficiency is associated with anemia, short stature, hypogonadism, impaired wound healing and geophagia. Source: National Library of Medicine, MeSH 2006

LP14795-6   Zinc
Zinc deficiency may be due to excess urine losses, especially in cirrhosis, hemolytic anemias, sickle cell disease, alcoholism, diabetes, or chronic renal diseases. Urine zinc levels are measured to evaluate therapy compliance in patients with Wilson's disease. Zinc is excreted mainly in feces, but elevated urine zinc levels may suggest excessive zinc supplementation.

Growth retardation, hypogonadism, skin changes, poor appetite, mental lethargy and delayed wound healing are some manifestations of chronic zinc deficiency. Severe deficiency may be life threatening in patients with acrodermatitis enteropathica. Source: Regenstrief Institute
