BBC One’s Eastenders literally has the viewers on the edge of their seats these days. The soap has been pelting one shocker after the other almost non-stop. The recent episodes saw Albie being diagnosed with a Alpha-1 antitrypsin (AAT) deficiency. Something that only passes down to a child if both his parents carry the same deficiency. While finding out such a diagnosis about her child was already so distressing for Sharon, matters became much worse when she found out that Keanu’s reports came negative for it. Leaving her horrified about a startling truth. But what exactly is it, and how is she going to deal with it?
Keanu had missed the initial part of the doctor’s consultation on EastEnders. Meaning, that he has no knowledge about how the AAT deficiency passes from parents to kids. When Sharon’s report came positive for the deficiency, but his own came negative, he just assumed the defect passed from Sharon to Albie. However, Sharon understood the gravity of the situation in a split second. But before the doctor could explain anything in detail, she asked Keanu to take Albie out. She then proceeded to ask the doctor if there could be a mistake with the reports.
