My neurologist tested my serum copper and ceruloplasmin levels a few months ago and I am deficient in both...below normal range. Being low in copper is rare in the developed world and I eat plenty of high copper foods and do not consume too much zinc. We ruled out Wilson's disease, but I'm really puzzled why I have low ceruloplasmin and low copper.
hi, i wanted to start a new thread about this. I think I may have copper and iron dysregulation.
Super low zinc. Low copper RBC and serum. Both turn the lights on....or at least mitosynergy copper turns the lights on.
I asked Dr Richard Frye ...mito guy at Arkansas childrens' hospital about this... and he was really leery about supplementing copper ....as most practitioners are.
I had a noticeable decrease in brain inflammation with zinc and copper...and I tested deficient for SOD years ago.
Also you need zinc and copper for metallotheineins and copper for methylation.
William Walsh and Carl Pfeiiffer have looked at this.. but not sure about their treatment per se.
I wish someone could shed some light...
