Zinc Deficiency
1 Hepatitis
1.1 Oral zinc supplementation is beneficial in chronic HCV infection by reducing serum ferritin and thus reducing oxidative stress and hepatic inflammation.[452] (Hechtman, 2012, p. 254)
1.1.1 role as a component of superoxide dismutase (CuZnSOD) which is necessary for cellular defence against reactive oxygen species. Zinc also competes for binding sites with the pro-oxidant minerals iron and copper.[449]
1.2 Serum and hepatic zinc is reduced in chronic HBV[450] and HCV[451] infection.
1.3
2 Pancreatic Insuficiency
2.1 reduce oxidative stress which contributes to pancreatic damage, needed for pancreatic tissue and enzyme production, deficiency associated with impaired exocrine function (Grish et al 2012).
2.2 Pancreatic enzyme insufficiency decreases the absorption of zinc, creating a vicious cycle.
3 Zinc Taste test
4 Hypochoridria
4.1 cofactor of carbonic anhydrase – generates hydrogen ion to replace the secreted H ion. Mucosal integrity (Kohlmeier 2003)
5 NAFLD
5.1
6 Insomnia
6.1 modulator for many proteins and enzymes for neurotransmission cell signalling[207] including that of the monamine oxidases (Hechtman, 2012, p. 1210)
6.1.1 disruption to this cell signalling and neurotransmission is likely to affect sleep. (Hechtman, 2012, p. 1210)
7 Nervous System
7.1 Anxitey / insomnia
