    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Changes in growth, body composition, and zinc indexes were evaluated after 25 wk in a double-blind zinc-supplementation study of 162 periurban Guatemalan children aged 81.5+-7.0 mo (x+-SD).

    Children receiving the zinc supplement (10 mg Zn/d as amino acid chelate) for 90.1+-9.2 d had higher mean fasting plasma zinc (16.2+-2.9 vs 14.9+-2.1 umol/L, P<0.01), a greater increase in median triceps skinfold Z score (0.50 vs 0.38, P<0.05), and a smaller deficit in median midarm circumference (MAC) Z score (-0.03 vs -0.20, P<0.05) compared with the placebo group.
