OBJECTIVE: To ascertain zinc deficiency in patients with insulin- dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) and evaluate the relationship between zinc clearance and body height velocity. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Six boys and 11 girls with IDDM and zincuria and glycosuria were studied. Study quality and specific descriptive information concerning relationship and outcome measurement were assessed. RESULTS: The values of total-body zinc clearance in IDDM patients were higher than in the control subjects (24.6 +/- 1.8 vs. 15.1 +/- 0.6, P less than 0.01). There was a negative correlation between body zinc clearance values and height velocity in IDDM patients. CONCLUSIONS: Patients with IDDM have a secondary zinc deficiency, and normal growth may be stunted.
