In brief: Unlikely

Amyloidosis, the abnormal deposition of proteins in organs/tissues, has may causes (inherited, multiple myeloma/other blood diseases, chronic inflammation, dialysis, other), but is not related to the amount of protein in the diet.
It is unlikely that dietary changes will affect the course of amyloidosis.

In brief: NO

There is no particular diet that helps amyloidosis.
However, those with renal/kidney involvement may have to follow a diet that limits protein, sodium, potassium, phosphorus and fluids. When a patient has cardiac involvement, the situation is different and exercise may be more important.
