Also known as: Copper Oxide, Wilson's Disease

Ceruloplasmin

Ceruloplasmin is a copper-containing protein. Lower-than-normal ceruloplasmin levels may be due to: chronic liver disease, intestinal malabsorption, malnutrition, nephrotic syndrome and Wilson's copper storage disease (rare). Higher-than-normal ceruloplasmin levels may be due to: acute and chronic infections, lymphoma, pregnancy, rheumatoid arthritis and use of birth control pills.
