Zinc: There are indeed many excellent articles on this topic. Zinc in low doses is quite safe. Are you having problems with erections? Are you exercising regularly? I would have your doctor order the labs related to testosterone. If they are all OK-- great!. If not your doctor will proceed to find out the "why's".
