Alport Syndrome Social Security Disability

Alport Syndrome and Social Security Disability

Alport Syndrome is a form of genetic illness that severely affects individuals with the syndrome’s kidneys, hearing, and eyes. Regardless of the symptoms being remarkably similar to those of glomerulonephritis, the disease can also cause vision and hearing loss. Although having the disease alone does not qualify individuals for disability benefits, the Alport Syndrome can incapacitate and impair those who have it. Alport Syndrome is not usually debilitating; in fact, many women with the hereditary disorder exhibit no symptoms at all.

To qualify for social security benefits as an Alport Syndrome sufferer, you may need to:

  • Have received an Alport Syndrome diagnosis
  • Not be able to maintain employment (or struggle to do so)
  • Demonstrate additional apparent and debilitating Alport Syndrome symptoms.
  • Utilize the Social Security Administration’s financial assistance program (SSA)
    Regardless of your present state of health, you may still file an appeal with the Social Security Administration. Financial aid may be available if you have been correctly diagnosed with Alport Syndrome.

Alport Syndrome – Diagnosis and Treatment

Alport Syndrome, sometimes called hereditary nephritis, is a severe genetic disorder that inhibits the body’s capacity to generate collagen, a structural protein that helps bind cells together. Alport Syndrome is characterized by excessively severe issues with the kidneys, eyes, and ears. Although these are the most prevalent and terrible symptoms of Alport Syndrome, additional typical symptoms include the following:

Urine that is bloody
Urine that is unusually colored
Face, legs, ankles, and feet swelling
Hearing impairment
Loss of vision
Alport Syndrome was identified by a British graduate student. It is characterized by persistent kidney failure. It is typically far more incapacitating in men with the genetic disorder than it is in women with the condition. Kidney problems, hearing loss, and vision loss are all common symptoms among men with the illness. Women with Alport Syndrome are more likely to be carriers than patients.

Alport Syndrome is neither treatable nor curable. All medicine can do is treat the symptoms and attempt to decrease their severity. Doctors and scientists are now investigating several gene therapy techniques. If gene therapy can aid the body in recognizing and producing collagen, the majority of Alport Syndrome symptoms may be alleviated or even eliminated entirely.

Your Disability Case for Alport Syndrome

The Social Security Administration is difficult enough to deal with with an attorney, but it can be far more difficult to deal with successfully on your own. Even with the assistance of family and friends, applying for a disability grant or additional financial aid can be an onerous procedure. A disability attorney can assist you in the following ways:

Successfully submit an application to the Social Security Administration
Appeal a Social Security Administration denial of your claim
Take advantage of the perks you require
If your Alport Syndrome disability claim has been denied or is pending, a disability attorney can assist you in regaining control of the issue. The attorneys will be aware of the variety of possibilities available to you and the various limits associated with your case.

A disability attorney nearly always improves your chances of obtaining necessary federal assistance. If you have become disabled as a result of Alport Syndrome, there is no reason you should not receive assistance – a disability attorney’s role is to assist you in obtaining the support you require and to obtain it on your behalf when you are in need.

You may be eligible for a disability check if you have been diagnosed with the ailment. If you or someone you know has Alport Syndrome and requires assistance, financial or otherwise, consider completing our Free Disability Evaluation to speak with a disability attorney about your unique situation.
