Appalachian type amyloidosis is a disorder in which your body piles up an abnormal protein called amyloid. Amyloid accumulation can impair organs and induce them to fail gradually. Despite its rarity, this condition has the potential to be dangerous.
Moreover, Appalachian type amyloidosis can damage the kidneys, heart, joints, skin, nerves, soft tissues, intestines, and liver. Other than that, amyloid can sometimes pile up all across your body. Systemic amyloidosis, which influences the entire body, is the name for this condition.
