Two hundred twelve participants were enrolled in the study. Of these, 112 (52.83 %) were females. The average age of the study subjects was 44.6 ± 14.2 years. Prevalence of zinc deficiency in the community was estimated to be 50 %. The mean serum zinc level was significantly higher in participants older than 60 years compared with younger age groups (F (2,209) = 5.88, p  0.05) and random blood sugar (r = −0.026, p > 0.05). No significant difference was observed between social class categories using the Registrar General’s scale of social classes (F (4,207) = 1.97, p > 0.05).
