Zinc and the elderly


, : Zinc and the elderly. Nutrition and the MD 12(7): 2-3

Marginal zinc intake for the isolated and impoverished elderly is common. In addition to deficient diets, reduced absorption or loss may occur because of illness or medications. Because it is difficult to assess zinc concentrations in plasma, a daily supplement of 15 mg may be prudent for this population. Zinc from natural sources is encouraged; a table of food sources is provided.(jd-b)

A method is described in which changes in intramammary pressures in lactating women can be registered without cannulation of the nipple. Pressure changes are transferred from the surface of the nipple and areola to a pressure transducer by way of...

Docetaxel alone or in combination with estramustine prolongs survival in patients with metastatic hormone-refractory prostate cancer. The role of chemotherapy is undefined in the treatment of patients who develop an increasing serum prostate-speci...
