Not particularly...: I don't check zinc levels in any of my low testosterone levels - i'm not certain zinc is clinically relevant to your condition. In any event, if you are worried that you need more zinc, go ahead and take zinc supplements, available over-the-counter at any pharmacy or food store. Hope this helps.
