In brief: Go toMD

Go to a professional who can explain the whole thing about a1a deficiency.
It is treatable and people can live a happy and productive life with treatment. They can tell her in a professional way what to expect, what to avoid, and yes to not smoke, and how to make the best of what she has. You can help by being supportive, the doctor can help you help her. Good luck, and i wish you and her the best.
