As amyloidosis is both rare and complex, seeking a proper diagnosis is important, and may require seeing multiple specialists. After receiving a diagnosis, treatment options for Amyloidosis need to be personalized.
There is no cure for amyloidosis. Treatment for the heavy build up of amyloids in the organs and tissues of the body usually involves dissolving the malfunctioning proteins or interrupting their production.
Some common treatment options are:
- Medication and Chemotherapy
- Bone Marrow Transplant and Stem Cell Transplant
Amyloidosis is so uncommon many physicians are not up to date on the latest treatments; however, growing awareness of the condition is leading to new research and treatment alternatives to help manage the symptoms of amyloidosis and limit the production of amyloid protein.
