Zinc, Copper and Ceruloplasmin all play a vital role in your body. The Copper, Ceruloplasmin + Zinc Profile 5033 is a blood serum test that assesses the levels of these key minerals to determine your body’s immune status, nutritional intake and/or absorption.
Patients experiencing digestive issues, chronic fatigue, nausea, depression, headaches or immune deficiencies may benefit from this test.
Zinc is an essential mineral involved in over 300 enzyme activities, particularly within the metabolic pathways. Identifying deficiencies or excess in this marker is vital for the functioning of the immune system.
Copper levels have an inverse relationship with zinc, therefore if zinc levels drop then copper levels will rise. Maintaining copper levels are essential for the production of new red blood cells and wound healing, above average levels can be toxic.
Ceruloplasmin is an enzyme that contains copper and contributes to the body’s iron metabolism. Measuring this enzyme can offer a more accurate measurement of the body’s copper levels.
If a deficiency is discovered, our team can assist patients to effectively treat the insufficiency with supplementation as well as guidance on opportunities to boost your body’s immune system.
