Wilson’s Disease

Copper is an essential nutrient for the human body that helps with bone and nerve building. People are able to get this nutrient through a variety of foods, but, for those with a condition known as Wilson’s disease, copper moves from being an important nutrient to a serious health problem due to their body’s inability to remove excess amounts. When the condition is discovered early on, it can be treated successfully. Unfortunately for many people, Wilson’s disease is not discovered early enough, causing significant problems and disabilities that keep them from performing tasks necessary for their occupation.

If you or someone you love has Wilson’s disease and is unable to work due to their condition, our Indianapolis social security disability attorneys of the Hankey Law Office may be able to help you seek the social security benefits you need. To speak with an attorney about how we can help, contact our offices today at 317-634-8565.

  • Cirrhosis
  • Jaundice
  • Hepatitis
  • Liver disease
  • Hepatorenal syndrome (kidney failure associated with liver disease)

Wilson’s disease causes toxins to build up in the body’s organs, leading to these and multiple other debilitating health problems.
