Goal: Optimize Zn:fCu ratio to 1:1
Approach: Depends on values obtained

Zinc is involved in multiple Alzheimer's-related metabolic processes, such as insulin resistance, chronic inflammation, ADAM10 proteolytic activity, and hormonal signaling.

One of the symptoms, signs, and laboratory values suggestive of type 3 Alzheimer's disease is Low serum zinc (<75mcg/dl) or RBC zinc, or high copper:zinc ratio (>1.3)
