ALPHA -1 ANTITRYPSIN(A1AT) is mainly produced in the liver and some in enterocytes and monocytes. One of its main functions is to protect from neutrophil elastase – an enzyme that can disrupt the integrity of connective tissue. Diagnosis is done by screening blood tests to check the levels of alpha-1 antitrypsin in the patient’s body. Genetic screening is done for abnormal genes, CT for lungs followed by spirometry test is done for lung function (COPD such as restrictive lung disease due to fibrosis) and ultrasound for disorders of the liver (fibrosis or cirrhosis). Symptoms of A1AT deficiency are shortness of breath. Excessive cough with phlegm/sputum production, wheezing, chest pain increases when inhalation, tiredness, weight loss, swelling of feet or belly, jaundice, vomiting of blood or blood in stools, etc.
