Re: Treating a zinc deficiency

One strange thing I noticed about my stretch marks is that they were NEVER PURPLE. I only noticed them when they were white/silvery in colour and they appeared when I became ill with adrenal fatigue.

Is it possible for stretch marks to form in white as I thought NEW stretch marks looked red/purple and as they aged they changed to white.

I certainly never saw purple/red lines on my body where I now have stretch marks.

Also, can a person have a copper and zinc deficiency at the same time or only one or the other as I believe zinc is antagonistic to copper and vice versa?

My hair analysis test shows copper at 9 on a range of 8-136 and zinc at 158 in a range of 119-245 so the test seems to show I am borderline low in copper and at the bottom of the range with zinc but I seem to remember you saying in an earlier reply to me that hair analysis tests are not reliable.

So I guess the result at face value implies I should take both copper and zinc supplements, but for how long? Is it safe to take 50mg zinc with 2.5mg copper for like a year for example to bring levels of both up in the ranges?

Also, is it true that copper is difficult to detect in hair and if it is detected in low amounts then it could indicate copper toxicity?

Here is the whole report from Jan 2011:

Thanks HV.
