Zinc deficiency is known to be associated with insulin resistance in obese individuals. This study was performed to evaluate the effect of zinc supplementation on insulin resistance and metabolic risk factors in obese Korean women. Forty obese women (body mass index (BMI) ≥ 25 kg/m2) aged 19-28 years were recruited for this study. Twenty women of the study group took 30 mg/day of supplemental zinc as zinc gluconate for 8 weeks and 20 women of control group took placebo. Usual dietary zinc…

Effect of Zinc Supplementation on Insulin Resistance, Energy and Macronutrients Intakes in Pregnant Women with Impaired Glucose Tolerance
TLDR
Oral supplementation with zinc could be effective in increasing serum zinc levels and energy intake with no effects on fasting blood sugar, homeostatic model assessment of insulin resistance and insulin levels.
Serum zinc level and its relation to insulin resistance and lipid profile in childhood and adolescent obesity
TLDR
ObeseChildren and adolescents have a poorer zinc status than children and adolescents of normal weight, which may affect lipid profile.

TLDR
Taken together, 220 mg zinc sulfate supplementation per day for 8 weeks among PCOS women had beneficial effects on metabolic profiles.
Zinc level and obesity
TLDR
Plasma zinc concentration in obese individuals showed an inverse relationship with the waist circumference and BMI as well as serum low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol and correlated positively with high-densitylipoprotein.

TLDR
It is indicated that Zn supplementation with a restricted calorie diet has favorable effects in reducing anthropometric measurements, inflammatory markers, insulin resistance and appetite in individuals with obesity, and may play an effective role in the treatment of obesity.

Effect of zinc supplementation on serum leptin levels and insulin resistance of obese women
TLDR
More human data from a unique population of obese individuals with documented insulin resistance would be useful in guiding future studies on zinc supplementation (with higher doses or longer intervals) or different measures.
Effect of zinc supplementation on insulin resistance and components of the metabolic syndrome in prepubertal obese children
TLDR
Besides lifestyle modification, zinc supplementation might be considered as a useful and safe additional intervention treatment for improvement of cardiometabolic risk factors related to childhood obesity.
[Effect of oral zinc administration on insulin sensitivity, leptin and androgens in obese males].
TLDR
Zinc increased the leptin concentrations in obese individuals, but did not modify insulin sensitivity and androgens, and a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial was performed.
Effect of zinc supplementation on markers of insulin resistance, oxidative stress, and inflammation among prepubescent children with metabolic syndrome.
TLDR
Irrespective of the order of receiving zinc and placebo, in both groups, significant decrease was documented for Apo B/ApoA-I ratio, ox-LDL, leptin and malondialdehyde, total and LDL-cholesterol after receiving zinc without significant change after receiving placebo.
Zinc nutritional status and its relationships with hyperinsulinemia in obese children and adolescents
TLDR
Considering that zinc is part of the synthesis and secretion of this hormone, an assessment is necessary of the possible participation of the oligoelement in the mechanisms of insulin resistance, commonly present in obese patients.
Current zinc intake and risk of diabetes and coronary artery disease and factors associated with insulin resistance in rural and urban populations of North India.
TLDR
Lower consumption of dietary zinc and low serum zinc levels were associated with an increased prevalence of CAD and diabetes and several of their associated risk factors including hypertension, hypertriglyceridemia and other factors suggestive of mild insulin resistance in urban subjects.

TLDR
Higher zinc intake may be associated with a slightly lower risk of type 2 diabetes in women, and an inverse association for dietary zinc to heme iron ratio is found.

TLDR
