Hi Dr. Woeller,
Can you please advise how to determine a ratio from two serum tests? For example, my client has a serum copper level of 1.11 mcg/ml in a range of .75 – 1.45
and a serum zinc level of .78 mcg/ml in a range of .66 – 1.10.
I am not exactly sure what you are asking. I believe the ratio and individual calculation of zinc and copper, and the potential problems, comes from the work of William Walsh and the Pfeiffer Treatment Institute – at least some of it does. I don’t personally know as far as other medical literature. Certainly in Wilson’s Disease the copper is a problem.
