GALINA’S EXPERT OPINION
Zinc deficiency can occur in people with ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease because zinc is lost through chronic diarrhoea, vomiting and impaired digestion/absorption of nutrients. “Zinc deficiency has even been documented in Crohn’s patients while in remission”(1) and in children, ages 8-18 with Crohn’s disease (2).
Also, people with intestinal surgery, stomach surgery such as gastric bypass, can become deficient in zinc due to an increased loss of zinc in stool and decreased absorption of zinc. ! Please note you can have zinc deficiency even when zinc level in your blood test is normal because blood level of zinc is not always an accurate reflection of the tissue level of zinc. ! Zinc deficiency must be based on a clinical diagnosis performed by your doctor.
