Copper,24hr urine,
Total vol=800mL
Out of range=12L
Ref range=15-60mcg/24h

How high is this?n Low Ceruloplasmin, is this Wilson disez? Coper 76 norm

Not Wilson's: Urine copper is very high in Wilson's. I'm going to assume that your urine copper was 12 mcg/24 hours. You're very right to be concerned about Wilson's -- it's among the most treacherous of all diagnoses. Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. In Wilson's, your urinary copper is often 1000s. Best wishes. ...Read more

They can't detect copper in my urine after two 24 hour urine tests. What can this indicate. My blood copper is rite on the normal mark and my cerulospasmin is a little low . I am a 25-year-old male.

They can't detect copper in my urine after two 24 hour urine tests. What can this indicate. My blood copper is rite on the normal mark and my cerulospasmin is a little low . I am a 25-year-old male.

Why do you ask?: If you are being screened for wilson's disease, finding no copper in your urine is good news. If none's detectable, the physician needs to call the pathologist in charge of the lab and ask why -- there's a problem. Healthy blood copper actually covers a considerable range (no 'mark'), and ceruloplasmin 'a little low' is only one item in a big picture. ...Read more

Any : Any test has a risk of being a false negative or even false positve for that matter. Heavy metal toxicity/poisoning is a very difficult issue, and has been a challenge for a lot of doctors. I recommend you consult a medical toxicologist. These doctors specialize in poison and metal toxicity. If you have already done so, I suggest a second opinion by another doctor in the field.
Good luck. ...Read more
