  1. Assessment of mild zinc deficiency in children.

    Article - En anglais

    Gross zinc deficiency is not common in India. however, the extent of subclinical zinc deficiency in the undernourished population is not so far established.

    Plasma and leukocyte zinc levels were determined in 103 preschol children belonging to different nutritional grades.

    In addition, serum thymulin activity was determined to detect mild zinc deficiency.

    All three parameters showed gross impairment in severely malnourished children compared to normal and undernourished groups (p<0.001).
