Description

Zinc is an essential trace element. Subnormal levels are associated with alcoholic cirrhosis, cystic fibrosis, myocardial infarction, acute and chronic infections. High levels may be due to industrial exposure. Zinc is important for skin and nail health.

A Zinc deficiency can cause:

  • hair loss
  • acne
  • memory loss
  • decreased appetite
  • impaired wound healing
  • painful menstrual periods

As an intracellular measurement of zinc, the Zinc RBC test is more reflective of your 3-4 month zinc status. 

Red blood cell (RBC) analysis is an invaluable method for assessing insufficiency or excess of elements that have important functions within cells or on blood cell membranes. Red blood cell (RBC) elements tests are used to assess the status of essential elements with important intracellular functions, such as magnesium, copper, and zinc.
