my family and I are over in mainland china where healthcare is very much substandard, a dr used a probe scanner and held it against the shin of 2 year old toddler and determined he's low in calcium, then prescribed 12 x 10ml vials and a vial is to be taken a day, in each vial there is:
1. calcium gluconates 600mg
2.zinc gluconates 30mg
3.L lysine HCl 100mg
Toddler loves vegetables of all sorts including leafy greens and is very healthy, fit, lively and happy.
we know for certain that 30,mg of zinc for a two year old is ~10x too much, and it is 200%RDA for an adult. read that 10mg per pound for children over 2yrs old. he is 13kg , 28.6lb, so this is a definite over dose as well,
Vitamin D3 capsules was also subscribed, they are 400IU I assume, as it says 400 VitaminD3
