Denture Cream Lawsuit – Zinc Poisoning Symptoms

Denture Cream Lawsuit – Zinc Poisoning Symptoms: "It has increasingly been reported that the denture cream ingredient zinc is associated with neurological symptoms including neuropathy in denture wearers. The recommended daily allowance of zinc is 8 mg for women and 11 mg for men. According to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies the largest daily tolerable zinc intake is 40 mg.
Consumers have looked at filing a Fixodent lawsuit or Poligrip lawsuit based on the fact that the manufacturers have not listed zinc as an ingredient in their denture cream and failed to warn about the serious risk of denture cream zinc poisoning. Studies have revealed that many denture wearers use excessive amounts of denture cream often due to poorly fitting dentures exposing them to excessive amounts of zinc contained in the denture adhesive.

An estimate 35 million Americans who use dentures are only now becoming aware of the risk of denture cream poisoning caused by a zinc overdose. The FDA currently does not require manufacturers of denture adhesive to list their product ingredients. High zinc levels (hyperzincemia) can cause the depletion of copper (hypocupremia) in the body which can cause neurological problems including neuropathy.

Zinc poisoning symptoms of neuropathy include:

• Numbness and tingling in the extremities
• Balance problems
• Loss of sensation
• Unexplained pain
• Decreased walking stride

An August 2008 article published in the journal Neurology reports that several patients who heavily used denture cream had symptoms of neurological side effects including weakness in the hands and legs, numbness and balance problems. All of the patients were tested and had abnormally high levels of zinc.
