We are super proud to have presented the story about the Amyloidosis Speakers Bureau at last week’s International Symposium on Amyloidosis (ISA) in Heidelberg, Germany.
In the amyloidosis community, we are quickly learning that carpal tunnel syndrome can be one of the earliest symptoms/indicators of amyloidosis, sometimes presenting up to a decade before diagnosis. In addition, it is suspected that amyloidosis is not as rare as we once thought. Interestingly, carpal tunnel release surgery is helping to illustrate just that.
Over the course of the past two months, we spent time discussing two of the most common hallmark symptoms of ATTR amyloidosis: cardiomyopathy and peripheral neuropathy. In this article, we’ll briefly recap both hallmark symptoms as well as bring it all together by discussing the two most common forms of ATTR amyloidosis: ATTR cardiomyopathy (ATTR-CM) and ATTR peripheral neuropathy (ATTR-PN).
