Re: Zinc : Serum vs RBC

Hi Epsilon,

My understanding is that serum or RBC are both acceptable when assessing zinc though will be more accurate when measured in a fasting state. As for magnesium, being an intracellular nutrient serum testing isn't very reliable.

If you can manage tracking your food on it for a couple of days it might help you get an understanding of what a keto meal looks (and tastes) lik...
