Optimal - The Biomarkers: ALT:AST Ratio, AST:ALT Ratio & Ceruloplasmin

ALT:AST Ratio, AST:ALT Ratio & Ceruloplasmin​

Dr. Dicken Weatherby & Beth Ellen DiLuglio

Welcome to Optimal - The Biomarkers where we cover new and interesting information and research on the biomarkers that we analyze and interet in the Optimal DX Software Application.

Today's audio presentation covers 2 important Functional Medicine ratios: the ALT:AST Ratio and the AST:ALT Ratio and finishes up with a discussion on Ceruloplasmin

Here's a breakdown of what we covered and timing:

  1. Introduction (0:00)
  2. ALT:AST Ratio (01:00)
  3. AST:ALT Ratio (08:10)
  4. Ceruloplasmin (13:45)
