Understanding Alpha-1 With The National Jewish Medical and Research Center
November 5, 2013
Alpha-1 isn’t a rare disease, just rarely diagnosed
Lifetime Television’s “The Balancing Act” welcomes Dr. Robert Sandhaus from the National Jewish Medical and Research Center as he talks about Alpha-1 (Antitrypsin Deficiency), explaining why this disease is so often misdiagnosed. Alpha-1 Testing is now more readily available; thanks to CSL Behring’s wider range of testing resources.
On this episode, Beth Troutman tells her story; Christina Nicholson embarks on an adventure to Orlando with her family; and former football player Marc Bouniconti shares his journey.
Three decades later, Marc Buoniconti, a quadriplegic, visits The Balancing Act to talk about his life, his mission, and his goal to one day walk again.
The Balancing Act's host Christina Nicholson and her family are embarking on a fun-filled vacation to Orlando, Fla., also known as the "theme park capital of the world."
