All my thanks for your collaboration with the molecular biologist and for posting about the potential of zinc for treating gas bubble disease in Hippocampus. It would be a great boon for home hobbyists to have a non-prescription alternative to Diamox/acetazolamide, especially an item that can be obtained inexpensively from any health food outlets that carry vitamin and mineral supplements.
Please keep us posted when any more information is available regarding the correct dosage for treating with zinc and the preferred form of zinc for best results. This is the first time I have heard about this treatment option and I am eager to learn more about it!
