    Extremely useful study, thanks. They graphed the relationship between ceruloplasmin and serum copper for a very large patient population, and it's a nearly linear relationship. I immediately see my data point falls outside the graphed relationship, so that definitely gets my curiosity up. I have serum copper at 18.08 umol/L and ceruloplasmin at 187.9 mg/L. The relationship is in their Figure 1.

    I have the same issue. Did you check ceruloplasmin? Mine was also below 0.20, the low range of normal. Mine was 0.19. I did a 24 hour urine test and am waiting for the results, but I don't see how it can come back normal if the bloodstream is high in copper...just doesn't make sense that you would pee out a normal level if that were the case.
