I never knew that Zinc is very important for Diabetics' date=' especially elderly like myself. I do read many articles and today read that in one hospital at the same time three infants developed skin conditions that linked to the Zinc deficiency as a result of a Nationwide Shortage of Injectable Zinc. I do not have infants, but the point that Zinc is important element in wound healing attracted my attention. Then I found this article
that studies show link between aging, diabetes and other health conditions, and Zinc deficiency.
