Andrew's Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency Story | ALPHA-1 UNWRAPPED EP3
“My advice to individuals experiencing Alpha-1 is to get tested now rather than later so you can make informed decisions about your life.”
We interviewed Andrew from Sydney, in the last of our Alpha-1 Unwrapped series. Andrew was first diagnosed with asthma, and then for COPD which went on for over 10 years. In 2021, Andrew was finally tested for Alpha-1 and the results came back positive.
He discusses the impacts the condition has had on his life, and his thoughts on the awareness of Alpha-1 within the health industry.
