Alpha-1 is a genetic, inherited liver disorder that can cause cirrhosis in babies, children, and adults, and emphysema in adults. There are an estimated 100,000 individuals in the U.S. at risk for Alpha-1 disease, yet fewer than 10% have been correctly diagnosed. In addition, 25 million people nationwide may be carriers of the Alpha-1 gene.  No cure currently exists for this devastating disorder. Early detection is important, as lifestyle changes may be helpful in prolonging good health.
