ALPHA-1 ANTITRYPSIN DEFICIENCY Symptoms, Causes & Treatments OVERVIEW Also called AAT deficiency, alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency is a genetic disease, which means it's passed down from your parents. It can cause serious lung disease that makes it hard to breathe. It can also cause liver disease that leads to jaundice, which makes your skin look yellowish. There's no cure, but treatments can help you manage your liver and breathing problems. You get the disease because your liver doesn't make enough of a protein called alpha-1 antitrypsin, or AAT. You need AAT to protect your lungs from getting broken down. Without it, infections and other irritants, like tobacco smoke, break down parts of your lung even faster. If you have AAT deficiency, you might not have any breathing symptoms until you're in your 20s or 30s. But when they start, you could feel short of breath or wheeze when you breathe, just like someone who has asthma. SYMPTOMS You might not know you have the disease until you're an adult, between the ages of 20 and 40. You may feel short of breath, especially when you try to exercise. You also may start to wheeze or have a whistling sound when you breathe. You may also get a lot of lung infections. Other warning signs include: • Feeling tired. • Your heart beats fast when you stand up. • Weight loss. If AAT deficiency causes problems with your liver, you might have symptoms like: • Yellowish skin or eyes. • Swollen belly or legs. • Coughing up blood. A newborn baby might have jaundice, or a yellow coloring of the skin or eyes, very yellow urine, poor weight gain, an enlarged liver, and bleeding from the nose or umbilical stump. In rare cases, a skin disease called panniculitis causes hardening of the skin with painful lumps or patches. CAUSES Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency runs in families. If you have it, you got it from faulty genes that both your parents passed on to you. Some people get the genes but don't get any symptoms. Or they have the mild version of the disease. The broken genes you get from your parents cause you to have a low level of AAT protein in your blood. It can build up in the liver instead of going into your bloodstream. That buildup in your liver causes liver disease. The shortage of AAT protein in your bloodstream leads to lung disease. TREATMENTS Although there’s no cure for AAT deficiency, you can raise the amount of AAT protein in your blood, which protects you against more lung damage. Doctors call this augmentation therapy. You may have this treatment if you get emphysema. Augmentation therapy is also called "replacement therapy." You get a new supply of AAT protein that comes from the blood of healthy human donors. You get the treatment once a week. The "replacement" alpha-1 gets into your body through an IV. You can have this done at home with the help of a technician, or you can go to a doctor's office. The goal of augmentation therapy is to slow or stop the damage in your lungs. It won't reverse the disease or heal any damage you already have. You will need these treatments throughout your life. Depending on how you're doing, you also may get medication that you breathe into your lungs with an inhaler. Doctors call this a bronchodilator, meaning that it opens your airways. If your breathing trouble leads to low levels of oxygen in your blood, you might need to get extra oxygen through a mask or nosepiece. Your doctor will also give you a referral for pulmonary rehab to help you breathe better.

See much more honest health information at: http://www.rehealthify.com/ Rehealthify offers reliable, up-to-date health information, anytime, anywhere, for free. -- video script below -- Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AAT deficiency) is an inherited condition that raises your risk for lung and liver disease. Alpha-1 antitrypsin (AAT) is a protein that protects the lungs. The liver makes it. If the AAT proteins aren't the right shape, they get stuck in the liver cells and can't reach the lungs. Symptoms of AAT deficiency include • Shortness of breath and wheezing • Repeated lung infections • Tiredness • Rapid heartbeat upon standing • Vision problems • Weight loss Some people have no symptoms and do not develop complications. Blood tests and genetic tests can tell if you have it. If your lungs are affected, you may also have lung tests. Treatments include medicines, pulmonary rehab, and extra oxygen, if needed. Severe cases may need a lung transplant. Not smoking can prevent or delay lung symptoms. NIH: National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute

Imagine-- a rare disease that’s rarely diagnosed-- because it mimics so many other diseases. We’re talking about Alpha-1 Anti-TRIP-sin Deficiency – or AAT -- a hereditary condition that may cause lung disease and liver disease. Dr. Kyle Hogarth, a Pulmonologist, at the University of Chicago and an expert in pulmonary diseases, joins us to discussAlpha-1 Anti-trip-sin Deficiency. It puts you at a higher risk for developing lung diseases, such as emphysema, as well as liver disease. It’s often linked with those conditions. But it’s a genetic condition-- passed from parents to their children.Who’s at risk of getting this condition? What tests determine if you have it? And what lifestyle changes can help patients cope with this disease? We have lots of insight.

A heartfelt short documentary profiling three families affected by the genetic condition, Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency. Three generations of the Quill family have been affected by Alpha-1. Jim is on the verge of a lung transplant that his wife, Marge does not want him to have. As his son, Donovan, an Alpha-1 Carrier married to Holly, also an Alpha-1 carrier are waiting for test results for their first child. Will their children also be affected by this genetic condition? Sarah and Richard Johnson's newborn son is born jaundiced. They don't know why until a pediatric hepatologist confirms their fears, Lucas has Alpha-1. His older sister is also diagnosed, but they don't take the news sitting down. John Walsh and his twin brother, Fred, both start to have breathing problems in their early 40s. When they are finally diagnosed, they realize that this must be what caused their mother's illness and death at the age of 46. When the National Institutes of Health suspends research to find a cure for Alpha-1, John is determined to see it continued. In 1995, he and two others establish the Alpha-1 Foundation. What is Alpha-1? Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (Alpha-1) is a genetic condition that can result in serious lung disease in adults and/or liver disease at any age.

Onset of lung problems is typically between 20 and 50 years old. This may result in shortness of breath, wheezing, or an increased risk of lung infections. Complications may include COPD, cirrhosis, neonatal jaundice, or panniculitis. A1AD is due to a mutation in the SERPINA1 gene that results in not enough alpha-1 antitrypsin (A1AT). Risk factors for lung disease include cigarette smoking and environmental dust. The underlying mechanism involves unblocked neutrophil elastase and build up of abnormal A1AT in the liver. It is autosomal co-dominant, meaning that one defective allele tends to result in milder disease than two defective alleles. The diagnosis is suspected based on symptoms and confirmed by blood tests or genetic tests. Treatment of lung disease may include bronchodilators, inhaled steroids, and when infections occur antibiotics. Intravenous infusions of the A1AT protein or in severe disease lung transplantation may also be recommended. In those with severe liver disease liver transplantation may be an option. Avoiding smoking is recommended. Vaccination for influenza, pneumococcus, and hepatitis is also recommended. Life expectancy among those who smoke is 50 years old while among those who do not smoke it is almost normal. Symptoms of alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency include shortness of breath, wheezing, rhonchi, and rales. The patient's symptoms may resemble recurrent respiratory infections or asthma that does not respond to treatment. Individuals with A1AD may develop emphysema during their thirties or forties even without a history of significant smoking, though smoking greatly increases the risk for emphysema. A1AD causes impaired liver function in some patients and may lead to cirrhosis and liver failure (15%). In newborns, alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency has indicators that include early onset jaundice followed by prolonged jaundice. It is a leading indication for liver transplantation in newborns. A1AT deficiency remains undiagnosed in many patients. Patients are usually labeled as having COPD without an underlying cause. It is estimated that about 1% of all COPD patients actually have an A1AT deficiency. Thus, testing should be performed for all patients with COPD, asthma with irreversible airflow obstruction, unexplained liver disease, or necrotizing panniculitis.[citation needed] The initial test performed is serum A1AT level. A low level of A1AT confirms the diagnosis and further assessment with A1AT protein phenotyping and A1AT genotyping should be carried out subsequently. The Alpha-1 Foundation offers free, confidential testing. Treatment of lung disease may include bronchodilators, inhaled steroids, and when infections occur antibiotics. Intravenous infusions of the A1AT protein or in severe disease lung transplantation may also be recommended. In those with severe liver disease liver transplantation may be an option. Avoiding smoking and getting vaccinated for influenza, pneumococcus, and hepatitis is also recommended. People with lung disease due to A1AD may receive intravenous infusions of alpha-1 antitrypsin, derived from donated human plasma. This augmentation therapy is thought to arrest the course of the disease and halt any further damage to the lungs. Long-term studies of the effectiveness of A1AT replacement therapy are not available. It is currently recommended that patients begin augmentation therapy only after the onset of emphysema symptoms. As of 2015 there are four IV augmentation therapy manufacturers in the United States, Canada, and several European countries. Intravenous (IV) therapies are the standard mode of augmentation therapy delivery. Researchers are exploring inhaled therapies. IV augmentation therapies are manufactured by the following companies and have been shown to be clinically identical to one another in terms of dosage and efficacy. Augmentation therapy is not appropriate for people with liver disease; treatment of A1AD-related liver damage focuses on alleviating the symptoms of the disease. In severe cases, liver transplantation may be necessary. more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpha_1-antitrypsin_deficiency

Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency often goes undiagnosed, or is diagnosed long after it's developed. Late diagnosis leads to worse outcomes in most conditions, but AATP is rare, so no previous studies were able to find a suitable patient population.

Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AATD) is a hereditary (genetic) disorder effecting approximately 1 in 5,000 Canadians. People suffering from AATD are often misdiagnosed with “typical” asthma or COPD, but are actually genetically predisposed to develop more severe lung conditions, at a younger age compared to similar people without AATD. Fortunately, with early identification, AATD can be treated effectively. Screening can be as simple as a blood test – speak with your doctor immediately about alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency if you think you may have this disorder.
