These are my latest labs.


Okay, these are my latest labs. Well, they aren’t all back yet, but the iron panel portion is for sure. I am baffled. I am getting worse daily as I eat starches. My thyroid, b vitamins and cardiac stuff will be back a couple weeks from now. I am stumped, though, that my copper has risen with just food (that tears my gut up, mind you) since March to now from 48 to 92. I am having major systemic inflammation, though. Actually, I am having major copper deficiency symptoms. My joints are all cracking like crazy and are becoming more and more hypermobile. My skin looks like crepe paper. My feet are really starting to hurt. Actually, my legs and joints in general. I have vericose veins now and a majorly swollen vein in my left leg. I am getting very weak legs. The hair on my arms are white. I have horrible receding gums. Let’s not forget my sibo and histamine intolerance. Is it that my copper could still come up as could my zinc and my ceruloplasmin is still pretty sucky? Is my ferritin horrible?

  1. I'd like to add that I had these numbers before about the same time I had an htma done. The htma showed my copper in the toilet and my zinc near the top of the range. Yes, I am about to get another htma done.

  2. Wish I could be more helpful. So your copper is improving then? Is it still low based on this group's target?

  3. Well, I do not have the full picture yet, though. I still have more labs waiting to be read which includes my thyroid panel. And, yes, oxalates might be at play here, too.

  4. Are you taking the cofactors and adrenal cocktail?

  5. I have not really focused on the protocol because I was waiting for these test results to see what my issues were. I have such a tore up gut, that I am having trouble with everything that I put in my mouth. I eat stuff anyways, and then suffer. Still yet, is anyone able to interpret my labs? Like Michela questioned, where should my levels be at?

  6. Interesting info on slow/fast oxidizers, Marcella. I'm so sorry you're in a pickle with your labs and diet. Have you thought about mulching your food in a blender to give your tummy a break? How about taking in supplements through the back door to avoid the gut? You can put anything in a capsule back there as long as you don't push it more than 1 1/2 inches or it will be taken up into the liver. Maybe you could just use a multi-mineral and let them all fight it out themselves?

  7. Here's the website we're using to heal my husband's IBS: We will be using their unique Stockton Aloe and Sovereign Silver. Just another idea for ya, Marcella. 🙂
