3. Bottled Water
Tap water contains toxins and minerals, including copper. It is a good idea, at least for the first year of treatment for Wilson’s disease, you should drink bottled water. If this may pose too much of an expense, have your water tested. You can probably manage if the rate of copper is more than 100 micrograms per liter, then you should use bottled water.
Filtered water may reduce the amount of copper, but it will not remove it completely. When you purchase bottled water, make sure it is free of copper by reading the label. Use pure water in soups, coffee, tea and drinks and in all recipes. You may find a service close to your home that can deliver bottled water to your door in sufficient quantities that it can be used for all of your recipes. Make sure processed foods such as soups and juices are not made with tap water.
