I took too much zinc picolinate during some months and now I have excess zinc what can I do to evacuate it? Copper helps but it takes too long

Consider homeopathy: Zinc toxicity is uncommon but can occur with doses of 100 mg/day or more taken over time, esp. If not balanced with copper in a 10-15:1 ratio. By simply stopping it the body will eliminate it but it has a half life of 280 days so this takes time. Many of the symptoms are due to copper deficiency so copper helps. I found no other mainstream treatments but homeopathic zinc may help- see comment:. ...Read more

That kind is much safer. Cinnamon has not typically caused problems. The preferred agent for diabetes in pregnancy is insulin, though metformin is used sometimes.
