This Zinc Blood Test measures the amount of zinc in the body by way of an accurate blood test. Zinc is essential to a number of bodily functions including boosting the immune system, assisting in wound healing, and maintaining metabolism. Low zinc levels can lead to a number of health issues as well as potential delays in growth. In addition, excessive zinc levels can cause minor health issues if not treated. Shellfish, beef, pork, and poultry are rich in zinc and recommended for those with zinc deficiencies. Receive quick and reliable results to help you build a better diet with the use of our Zinc Blood Test.

Signs of Low Zinc Levels

Zinc can have a heavy impact on many things in your body, from your immune health to your overall wellness. If you have low zinc levels, you may notice:

  • Getting sick more easily
  • An overall feeling of irritability
  • Loss of appetite
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Changes in hair and nails
  • Stomach upset, including diarrhea
  • Vision changes
  • Slowed healing
  • Slow growth in children

If you have any signs of zinc deficiency, having a Zinc Blood Test can help you identify those changing levels and, in many cases, improve your overall health. 

Interpreting the Results of Your Zinc Blood Test

When you receive the results of your Zinc Blood Test from Priority Lab Testing via our online portal, you will notice three clear columns. The “range” column will lay out the normal range of zinc levels in the body, giving you a better idea of what to look for as you interpret your test. Next, the “results” column will tell you the exact results of your test, so you can determine the levels of zinc in your blood. Finally, the “flag” column will let you know whether your levels are high, low, or within normal range. If you have further questions about the results of your zinc blood test, our care counselors can help give you a better idea of what your results might indicate.

Zinc Blood Test vs. Mineral Panel

Sometimes, you might suspect that you have low zinc levels due to a specific group of symptoms, including low overall immunity and delayed wound healing. In other cases, however, you might feel generally irritable or have noticed hair and nail changes, but not be entirely sure what might be causing your decreased health. A full Mineral Panel may help provide you with vital insight into where your levels might be low and what changes you might need to make to your diet in order to improve your overall health. While a Zinc Blood Test is designed just to look at the levels of Zinc in your blood, a Mineral Panel can provide you with deeper insight into all your mineral levels and any needed changes or deficiencies.
