WHAT IS ALPHA-1?

Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (Alpha-1) is a genetic (inherited) condition – it is passed from parents to their children through their genes. Alpha-1 may result in serious lung disease in adults and/or liver disease at any age.

TESTING FOR ALPHA-1

The Alpha-1 Foundation encourages testing for Alpha-1 among those at high risk for this genetic disorder. Anyone can ask their doctor to test them for Alpha-1 or they may choose to be tested confidentially.
