Once your doctor reviews your symptoms and medical history, he or she will perform a physical examination and order blood and urine tests to determine if any abnormal proteins indicate amyloidosis. You may also require a skin tissue biopsy and imaging studies such as an echocardiogram, MRI, and nuclear tests to learn about the damaged organs.
The indicated treatment will be established based on the affected organ and its severity, although the main objectives will be to reduce the generation and concentration of amyloid protein, as well as to reduce symptoms through:
- Targeted therapy
- Transplantation of stem cells or of an affected organ.
