Raising Ceruloplasmin When Copper Won't Do It

Raising Ceruloplasmin When Copper Won't Do It

Q&A Files #312 Early Release Podcast

How do I get my ceruloplasmin up if copper doesn't raise it?

This is a question asked live during the November 19, 2022 AMA.

Short Answer: Usually ceruloplasmin raises with copper, which may be important to protect copper from causing oxidative stress. If it does not raise in parallel, the usual suspects to look at are vitamin A and thyroid hormone. However, in this person’s case, his own evidence from self-experiments suggest that he needs antioxidants to lower his transferrin saturation. Lowering his transferrin saturation may be the key to raising his ceruloplasmin.
