Copper deficiency occurs mainly due to some problems in the gut. When our body cannot absorb microelements, including copper, through the intestines it is called malabsorption. Malabsorption is one of the common reasons for copper deficiency.
Lack of copper in the body may result in fatigue and weakness, frequent sickness, weak and brittle bones, memory and learning difficulties, unsteady walking, sensitivity to cold, pale skin, premature grey hair, reduced vision.
Low levels of Copper may indicate a Copper deficiency.
High levels of Copper may cause toxicity and requires medical attention.
