Clinical Significance

Zinc is one of the essential trace elements, is present throughout the body in many tissues but is not stored at any particular site. Zinc deficiency can occur where zinc needs exceed the intake or in case of malabsorption. Alcoholism, pregnancy & burns are often associated with zinc deficiency. Zinc levels decrease in response to infections, so a low result may not necessarily mean a person is zinc deficient. Clinically, Zinc deficiency leads to hair loss, poor wound healing, dermatitis and impaired immune function. In children it can cause growth retardation. Since zinc can be excreted in the urine/feces, high levels are rarely seen. Excessive supplementation of Zinc lead to toxicity.
