Liver Disease caused by Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency

Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency is a rare genetic condition that can cause liver disease, lung disease, and diseases of the skin and connective tissues. Dr. Jeffrey Teckman is a specialist in Alpha-1 liver disease. There is great information here: alpha-1foundation.org/alpha...

Alpha-1 is diagnosed quickly with a blood test that you can request at your clinic or surgery.
