Types of Cancer

Amyloidosis is a rare but serious disease caused by an accumulation of proteins, specifically misfolded proteins, in the form of insoluble fibers known as amyloids.

These amyloid deposits can interfere with the normal functions of various organs they infiltrate, resulting in a wide range of potential health issues. There are multiple types of amyloidosis, each categorized based on the type of protein involved and the organs affected.

Common Symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Unintentional weight loss
  • welling in the legs/ankles

We have blog topics delving into amyloidosis - such as what it is, the symptoms, how it’s treated, and advice for living with the condition. You can find them below.
