Trace Minerals

The primary trace minerals of nutritional significance are chromium, copper, selenium, and zinc. Signs and symptoms of toxicity correlate with routes of exposure, specific elemental forms to which a person is exposed, and whether exposure is acute or chronic. Deficiencies of these minerals may exist in patients with chronic illness, post bariatric surgery patients, and preterm infants.
