I'm wondering if anyone can help me interpret some test results and offer some suggestions on where to go from here. I don't think I have Wilson's Disease, which is a genetic copper storage problem, but I do think I am copper toxic, and copper deficient at the same time. I recently had my ceruloplasmin level checked. The results were; .18g/L (0.15-0.60) While this looks like it's within the normal range, reference ranges vary between labs. According to sites specifically about Wilson's Disease, any ceruloplasmin level less than 20mg/dL (the Merck site uses the reference range 20 to 35 mg/dL) warrants further investigation. My first question is, have I misinterpreted my results? I don't trust my old noggin anymore, what with all that brain fog up there... The locum I discussed these results with didn't think they were significant. I suspect my doctor would probably say the same, but I think they are very significant. I've had a high level of exposure to copper my whole life, and I have a high copper diet. If I'm not binding much useable copper, where is the rest of it? Wouldn't that mean that it's in my system, unbound, causing mischief? My serum iron and zinc are low. I've had trouble with anemia since I was a child. I've never been able to get enough iron from my diet, regardless of what I eat. I have to take supplements. Although now, my iron is low again, even though I am taking iron pills. I know that some people recommend hair analysis for confirming copper toxicity, but I can't afford it, and I also want some sort of test that a doctor would recognise as relevant. I'm considering getting a 24hr urine copper test done, which doesn't need a doctor's referral. I don't think my doctor would order one. The other option is a slit-lamp eye exam to look for Kayser-Fleischer Rings, but I don't know if these are present with copper toxicity, or just Wilson's Disease. Maybe I've got it wrong, and I don't have a copper toxicity problem, but given my symptoms, I need to rule it out... Not really sure where to go from here. Suggestions, anyone?
