I am a victim of the denture cream zinc poison. I stumbled across the information and asked my doctor to perform a zinc and copper test. Bingo! All the things we couldn't figure out over the last two years suddenly made sense. Anemia, High Cholesterol, Low HDL Cholesterol, gastritis symptoms, pigmentation problems in my face with severe disfiguring col orations, fibromyalgia like pains and cramps, migraines, starting to loss balance, numb hands and feet and more.

Well I am on a copper supplement and switched to a zinc free denture cream. It's only been a week but I see changes in the cramping of my muscles already, but I am still exhausted. I still feel very tired and heavy. Does anyone know how long it will take the high zinc toxin levels to come down? Has anyone recovered from this? Can you give me any advice on how long all these symptoms will last? I can barley take care of my 4 year old as I am too tired and I just really want to sleep allot. My iron levels were improved so it's not the anemia. Anyone??

Thank You so much,
