In brief: It can stabilize

The extent of involvement by amyloidosis is important.
. The heart, kidneys, pituitary....Bone marrow... Mild involvements could go on for years...Without progression or medications.. For severe... It could deteriorate..Medications could prolong life... Ask your doctor and hematologist to go to a referral center.

It is in different types of tissues.
It is present in this issue, can cause problems in the organs, but is not very responsive to any type of therapy.
