In the context of zinc administration as medicine / therapy in children, zinc is most often given to diarrhea conditions of children and toddlers because various studies / studies have proven that zinc supplementation is able to shorten the duration of diarrhea in children and even provides a protective effect against the incidence of diarrhea until weeks / months after discontinuation of supplementation.
