I was diagnosed with COPD about 1 year ago and shortly after that I tested positive for Alpha1. I have been doing a lot of reading about these diseases and this is my question....as Alpha1 is a hereditary disease is it safe to assume that the Alpha 1 is the cause of the COPD? Also is there anything I could have done to prevent the Alpha1?
As always, thanks for your iinput!
