Zinc deficiency in children with sickle cell disease.

Abstract

Zinc status was studied in 47 children with homozygous sickle cell disease (SCD). Decreased hair and plasma zinc was demonstrated in these children and hyperzincuria was found in the older patients. This study indicates that zinc deficiency in patients with SCD is probably due to hyperzincuria.
