READERS’ CORNER:Zinc overload

One reader complained last time about suffering from zinc levels that are 10,000 times higher than normal. The cause could be post-viral fatigue following a heart virus. Supplementation with copper and molybdenum could help, suggests one reader, while calcium and manganese can also help zinc absorption, says another. Check that you definitely do have high zinc levels, says one reader, and hair analysis is the best way to ascertain this. If you do, it suggests that zinc is not being utilized properly, and this can be helped with B6 supplementation. If your copper levels aren’t too high, try wearing a copper bracelet as this is antagonistic to the zinc. A nutritionist endorses the view that it could be treated with B6 supplementation, but high zinc levels could also indicate liver imbalances.
