Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency: Testing & Treatment Options

Show: (November 19, 2018)

Alabama has a high rate of emphysema, and healthy people who know they have Alpha-1 in their family, should be tested for the gene to slow or prevent deterioration of health. As delayed diagnosis is thought to be associated with adverse outcomes, it is important that providers know the facts about Alpha-1 to council their patients on the importance of testing so they can make the lifestyle adjustments necessary to achieve the best outcomes.

Mike Wells, MD, discusses the Alpha-1 Clinic at UAB Medicine and when to refer.
