Amyloidosis and Neuropathy (nerve damage)

What it is, what can be done

Just tell me what to take for Neuropathy

Metabolism is the chemical reactions that happen in living organisms to maintain life. These processes allow organisms to grow and reproduce, maintain their structures, and respond to their environments.  

Amyloidosis is a metabolic disorder, a defect of metabolism. 

Amyloidosis is where a protein called amyloid is deposited in tissues and organs.  

Amyloidosis can affect the spleen, lymph nodes, kidney & liver. Other organs can also be involved. This happens in connection with frequent communicable or inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, tuberculosis or osteomyelitis (bone infection).  Treating the main disease is necessary to stop the amyloidosis. 

Symptoms may be different from person to person but the common symptoms are bone lesions, irregular heartbeat, difficulty swallowing, swollen legs, and/or ankles, tingling in the hands and feet (peripheral neuropathy) enlarged tongue, chronic arthritis, nerve damage (neuropathy), heart damage, weakness, shortness of breath, kidney damage, numbness (neuropathy), diarrhea, chronic fatigue, weight loss, abnormal hair loss, skin changes and respiratory failure.

Neuropathy & Amyloid Deposits

These amyloid deposits can form on nerves throughout the body, leading to injury and nerve dysfunction. 

Amyloidosis can affect peripheral sensory, motor or autonomic nerves and the deposit of amyloid lead to degeneration and dysfunction in these nerves. 

See article for more information about Neuropathy including natural treatments.
