Human model of the short gut - zinc and copper nutriture in young subjects following intestinal bypass surgery for morbid obesity



Human model of the short gut - zinc and copper nutriture in young subjects following intestinal bypass surgery for morbid obesity



Israel Journal of Medical Sciences 15(5): 470-471



In 6 girls and 2 boys 11 to 19 years old with intestinal bypass, weight loss was on average 43% and had become stable at on average 30 months after operation. In 5 patients serum zinc was low, less than 70 mu g/100 ml. Serum copper was 92 plus or minus 13 (mean plus or minus s.d.) g/100 ml compared with laboratory normal of 119 plus or minus 20. Calculated daily zinc intake was on average 16.8 plus or minus 6.9 mg, exceeding the Recommended Dietary Allowance.
