Alpha-1 Antitrypsin

1 post in this topic

Hello. I know it's a big shot in the dark, but just wondering if anyone else has been diagnosed with Alpha-1 Antitrypsin deficiency? I feel like I lost the gene pool gamble. I have Celiac and because two cousins of mine have Alpha-1 I was tested and diagnosed with it as well. Absolutely nothing you can do about it - just makes a person aware that there lungs and liver are not protected making them more susceptible to lung and liver disease. It's just as difficult for doctors to identify this as it is for Celiac. This is a decsription of Alpha-1 from the website:

What is Alpha-1?

Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (AAT Deficiency or Alpha-1) is one of the most common serious hereditary disorders in the world and can result in life-threatening liver disease in children and adults or in lung disease in adults.
