Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, also known as A1AT or AATD, is a genetic condition which results in a lack of the alpha-1 antitrypsin (AAT) protein in the blood. AAT is produced by the liver and serves to protect both the liver and the lungs. A lack of the AAT protein can lead to emphysema and other serious lung and liver disease.
