Wilson’s disease is a rare genetic disease that causes excess copper to deposit in the vital organs of the body. This condition is usually diagnosed in childhood. The common symptoms seen are fatigue, lack of appetite, abdominal pain, jaundice, Kayser-Fleischer rings (golden-brown eye discoloration), fluid buildup, muscle stiffness, and uncontrolled movements. It is an autosomal recessive condition, which means you will develop this disease if you inherit one defective gene from each parent. Early diagnosis is essential as it can cause liver cirrhosis, liver failure, tremors, involuntary muscle movements, kidney problems, depression, jaundice, and anemia.
