Sno. Test Name Amount  Min Qty Ref. Value
1     ZINC - SERUM 300   1 ml 70 - 115 Microgm/dl
2     ZINC Transporter 8 (ZnT8) 10000   Less than 15 U/mL

Clinical Use
------------
1. Confirm diagnosis of type 1 diabetes mellitus in symptomatic children and adults
2. Help predict development of type 1 diabetes mellitus in asymptomatic people at high risk.

Interpretation
--------------
ZnT8 antibody results above the reference range indicate an autoimmune etiology (ie, type 1 diabetes) in individuals with diagnosed diabetes. A result below the reference range, however, does not rule out type 1 diabetes. Testing for additional autoantibodies may be beneficial when type 1 diabetes is suspected.

In asymptomatic individuals, ZnT8 antibody results above the reference range may predict development of type 1 diabetes. A ZnT8 antibody result below the reference range does not rule out risk of type 1 diabetes, as other antibodies associated with risk of developing type 1 diabetes (GAD-65, IA-2, IAA, and ICA) may be present.
