Trace elements and alcohol.


In our study alcoholic patients with and without cirrhosis have a decreased serum zinc. They also have increased serum copper and iron with an increase in the serum ferritin. There is no evidence of selenium deficiency in either alcoholic group. Alcohol when given with zinc in a single dose to normal volunteers increases the serum zinc and therefore appears to increase the absorption of zinc.
