Zinc status of asthmatic, prednisone-treated asthmatic, and non-asthmatic children



Zinc status of asthmatic, prednisone-treated asthmatic, and non-asthmatic children



Journal of the American Dietetic Association 84(2): 157-163



For 29 asthmatic persons, 11 asthmatics treated with prednisone and 21 non-asthmatics 6 to 20 years old, height and taste acuity were measured, zinc and copper were estimated in serum and hair, and intakes of energy, protein, Zn and Cu were calculated from diet found by 24-h recall. Intakes were about the same for all 3 groups; adequate for energy and Zn, 80 to 90% of the USA recommended dietary allowances (NAR/A 51, 7316), high for protein, 185 to 225%, and low for Cu, 35 to 60%.
