Serum zinc levels in children with kwashiorkor aged one to three years at Kenyatta National Hospital and the effect of zinc supplementation during recovery



Serum zinc levels in children with kwashiorkor aged one to three years at Kenyatta National Hospital and the effect of zinc supplementation during recovery



East African Medical Journal 65(10): 670-679



Serum zinc concentrations were estimated in 82 children with kwashiorkor and 49 healthy age-matched controls. The role of early zinc supplementation on accelerating the improvement of the clinical symptoms was also examined. 42 of the patients received zinc supplementation while 40 patients did not. Mean weight of the patients was 8.0 kg and that of the controls 11.3 kg.
