While copper is an important nutrient that helps humans build bones, nerves, and develop melanin, excess amounts of this nutrient must be removed by the body in order to prevent toxic build up in the organs. Unfortunately, Wilson’s disease is an inherited condition caused by a genetic mutation that makes the body unable to remove copper properly, resulting in multiple health problems for those with the condition.
Our Indiana long term disability attorneys of Hankey Law Office, are committed to helping individuals with Wilson’s disease and other disabilities get the benefits they need if they are unable to work due to their disability. If you or a loved one is applying for long term benefits or is appealing a denied claim, we may be able to help. Contact us today at (800) 520-3633.
Health Problems from Wilson’s Disease
People with Wilson’s disease experience damage to their bodies due to the buildup of copper, which in turn can result in a number of serious health issues, including:
- Portal hypertensive gastropathy (stomach disease)
- Varices (blood vessels that rupture)
- Liver disease
While Wilson’s disease can be detected early on and treated, many people are left with complications that make it difficult or impossible to carry on with their line of work.
