Nutrient intake is a main regulator of circulating IGF-I. The relation of zinc status and IGF-I in adulthood has not been studied adequately even though suboptimal intakes of zinc are reported widely in the elderly. This study examined the relation between calculated nutrient intakes from 119 postmenopausal women and concentrations of IGF-I… CONTINUE READING
