In brief: It does not

Amyloidosis occurs when the body makes an abnormal protein that deposits in organs and causes them to malfunction.
This can occur in the kidneys, heart and brain. It can be seen for example in association with other disease, like multiple myeloma or it can occur by itself. The reason the body begins to make this abnormal protein are not fully understood, but a high protein diet is not a cause.
