zinc deficiency

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has said that 31% of the world’s population has zinc deficiency.

In fact, zinc deficiency is the fifth leading risk factor in disease worldwide, such is its importance to maintaining a healthy and effective immune system.

Symptoms of Zinc Deficiency

There are numerous symptoms of zinc deficiency and these are certainly not all third world problems.

  • Weak immunity – e.g. being prone to colds
  • Allergies and sensitivities to food and environmental factors
  • Slow wound healing
  • Slowed growth
  • Low insulin levels
  • Loss of appetite
  • Irritability
  • Hair loss/thinning hair
  • Rough and dry skin
  • Acne
  • Skin rashes
  • Poor sense of taste and smell
  • Nausea
  • Leaky gut
  • Susceptibility to diarrhoea
  • Poor neurological function
  • Attention issues

Diagnosing Zinc Deficiency

Many people assume that zinc deficiency is more of a third world problem, which means that people are not alert to it in the UK. Yet with busy Western lifestyles, it can affect many people and go undiagnosed.

OligoScan Advanced Spectrometry Testing

London-based Clinicbe® can quickly and easily diagnose zinc deficiency without taking a blood or urine sample. The clinic uses advanced OligoScan spectrometry cellular testing service; a system which involves a cellular scan to provide detailed data on the patient’s body and health:

  • Mineral deficiencies (due to diet and food choices)
  • Accumulation of heavy metals in the body
  • Anti-oxidant levels
  • Acidity levels
  • Pure assimilation

Once diagnosed, zinc deficiency can then be treated. Patients with zinc deficiency are often surprised how much healthier they feel and how annoying skin issues and sensitivities are reduced once the issue is resolved. Zinc deficiency can be treated through dietary change, or supplements.
