>Chiron how do they treat it? Chelation theraphy?

The disease is treated with lifelong use of chelating agents such as D-penicillamine or trientine hydrochloride, drugs that help remove copper from tissue. Patients also need to take vitamin B6 and follow a low-copper diet. Taking extra zinc may be helpful in blocking the intestines' absorption of copper.
