    Anyone have advice on how to manage a SOD2 mutation? I’ve had a serum copper deficiency for years, but high unbound copper (due to lack of ceruloplasmin). My serum zinc is low but RBC zinc is normal. I supplement with zinc, but it worries me because of my pre-existing copper deficiency. I’ve tried supplements with both zinc and copper, but they make me unbelievably nauseous. The only one that doesn’t upset my stomach is zinc picolinate, but it doesn’t contain copper. I’ve tried ionic copper, and it makes me nauseous and causes a full-blown panic attack. I don’t have Wilson’s disease.
