Ordering Recommendation:  

Limited utility as an indicator of deficiency; concentration does not correlate well with intake. Serum or plasma concentrations (0020097) are best for assessment of deficiency over short periods of time. For acute toxicity, urine concentration (0020462) may be a more reliable indicator of exposure.

5.
Ordering Recommendation:  

• If pursuing antibody testing to determine autoimmune diabetes mellitus, perform at least 2 antibody tests. Other antibody tests include Glutamic Acid Decarboxylase Antibody (2001771), IA-2 Antibody (0050202), Insulin Antibody (0099228), and Islet Cell Cytoplasmic Antibody, IgG (0050138).
• Most useful to establish autoimmumne etiology in previously diagnosed type 1 DM.
• Do not use to differentiate type 1 versus type 2 DM, for most cases.

Ordering Recommendation:  

Limited utility as an indicator of deficiency as concentration does not correlate well with intake. Serum or plasma measurements (0020097) are best for assessment of deficiency over short periods of time. For acute toxicity, zinc in urine (0020462) may be a more reliable indicator of exposure.

7.
