My dad was diagnosed with Alpha-1 Antitripsyn Deficiency about 28 years ago, and since then I have watched him deal with endless doctors, appointments, infections, etc. Alpha-1 can affect the lungs or the liver. It is a significantly under-diagnosed disease, and can be diagnosed by a simple blood test. It is thought that about 25,000 people in the UK have this genetic condition.
