Not sure why this happened, but doctor says I have amyloidosis. Am trying to figure out what it is before I tell my boss.?

Abnormal protein. Amyloidosis is accumulation of abnormal protein in tissues. It can be due to many causes, e.g., chronic inflammation, multiple myeloma, genetic predisposition, and in some cases without a known cause. It is a serious, though not acute, illness and can affect many organs like kidney, liver, heart etc. You should consult your doctor before talking to your boss.
Protein deposition. Amyloidosis refers to the deposition of specific proteins (amyloid) into organs and tissues. There are different types of amyloidosis (hereditary, infectious, inflammatory, neoplastic, age-related) and the prognosis and therapy is dependent on the cause of your amyloidosis.
