Rate this book

A knowledgeable handbook with a patient's perspective for those afflicted with the incurable disease known as Alpha-1 Antitrypsin deficiency (A1AD).

Alpha-1 Antitrypsin deficiency (A1AD) is a rare genetic, incurable disease which causes the liver to not produce enough of a certain protein that protects and keeps the lungs functional. 100,000 people in the United States have A1AD and 19 million more are carriers for the disease. Since it's so rare, the information available about A1AD has been lacking especially for those suffering unknowingly with the disease. Living with Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency offers the most up-to-date and comprehensive information on this illness and includes first-hand experience from someone managing the disease. Living with Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency also includes expert advice from doctors and researchers tackling the disease, with tips on recognizing symptoms and getting the most effective help possible.

My young daughter was recently diagnosed with A1AD and this book was helpful for us in our learning. The list of resources at the end was incredibly useful and I'm so glad to have it!
