Hypozincemia in diabetes mellitus.

Author information

Department of Medicine, JLN Medical College, Ajmer.


The present study was conducted on 20 age and sex matched healthy controls and 30 patients of diabetes mellitus. Serum zinc levels in diabetics were found to be significantly (p < 0.001) reduced as compared to healthy controls. There was no significant sex difference (P > 0.05) in serum zinc levels amongst diabetic patients and healthy controls. Hypozincema in diabetes mellitus may be due to altered zinc metabolism and oral zinc may have a role in therapy.
