My GP asked for my zinc to be tested as a result of my complaint about hair loss etc backed up by being shown my Facebook photo of my hair 3 yrs ago, and seeing how it is now!
I've just phoned for my results ("I can't give you the figures, I can only tell you they are normal as I'm not medically qualified" said the receptionist!!!)
My result is 14.2 numol (range 11.0 - 24.0)
So within range but low end. Does anyone have a view? Should I supplement, and if so, with what? I understand that as I don't eat meat the RDA is up to 50% above that for meat eaters. Is this is something I should bother returning to the GP to discuss or should I assume in range will equate to normal/no action?
