Several studies have shown that zinc deficiency affects the growth of hormone. Severe zinc deficiency weakens the immune function, was eventually increased susceptibility to infection, including respiratory infection and diarrhea. The objective of this reserch was to study and analysis the differences in zinc levels, the incidence of respiratory infection and diarrhea in the stunting-wasting children and normal children.

The study sample consisted of two groups of children 2-5 years old suffering from stunting-wasting and normal children. The research result showed there was no difference in zinc levels between stunting-wasting children groups and normal children groups (p=0,117). There were also differences in the incidence of respiratory infection in the stunting-wasting children and normal children (p=0,000). There were also differences in the incidence of diarrhea in the stunting-wasting children and normal children (p=0,000).
