    Zinc supplementation for infants

     


    Umeta and colleagues showed significant effects of the zinc
    supplement on linear and ponderal growth in both the stunted and
    non-stunted infants; the two effects were much greater for the
    stunted infants, a trend consistent of a meta-analysis.

     

    In the
    Ethiopian study, the positive growth response was attributed, in
    part, to a secondary impact of zinc on growth resulting from
    reductions in the incidence of anorexia and morbidity from cough,
    diarrhoea, fever and vomiting in the stunted children.
    Substantial reduction in rates of diarrhoea and pneumonia
    attributed to the role of zinc in both cellular and humoral immune
    functions.
