When the body’s immune system reacts to a foreign substance like a particular food, pet dander or medication, it’s called an allergy. An allergic reaction can range from mild to severe, and includes anything from a stuffy nose, skin rash or swelling to the life threatening swelling of lips, throat and tongue (anaphylaxis). The severity of allergies varies from person to person.

Alopecia areata is a type of hair loss that happens when the body’s immune system attacks hair follicles, which is where hair growth starts. This usually results in large clumps of hair falling out and creating smooth, round patches of baldness. Sometimes the hair either becomes thin in spots or falls out over the whole head and body. Hair loss generally comes and goes. Alopecia most often affects people under the age of 20, has no known causes, and is not curable but can be treated.

Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency is a genetic disease (passed from parent to child) that can cause serious lung and liver diseases. This occurs when the liver doesn’t make enough alpha-1 protein, which protects the lungs from infection and inflammation. Symptoms, like shortness of breath, typically begin in the 20s or 30s.

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive loss of brain cell function and number, resulting in symptoms like confusion, loss of memory and social skills, and overall brain function (dementia). Most often seen in older adults, genetics (runs in the family) and lifestyle seem to play a factor. Women are more likely to develop Alzheimer's than men. Depending on the person, it can progress slowly or quickly, and there is no cure.
