Many people are claiming that ceruloplasmin BINDS iron
There is a lot of contradictory information floating around here about the iron issue and I think things need to be cleared up. Many people are claiming that ceruloplasmin BINDS iron (similar to copper). When I have asked for the formula to figure out how much iron is bound to ceruloplasmin I am usually ignored. One person responded to my question (can’t remember her name now) saying that ceruloplasmin does NOT bind iron, it only converts it from one form to another. And she backed this claim up with links to studies.
So if ceruloplasmin truly binds iron, what is the formula for determining the amount of bound iron?
