Transthyretin Amyloid Cardiomyopathy (ATTR-CM)

Transthyretin Amyloid Cardiomyopathy (ATTR-CM) - How to prevent?

​In ATTR-CM, the normal protein transthyretin, which circulates in the blood, becomes deformed due to genetic mutation or ageing. While there is little one can do to reduce the risk of ATTR-CM, if you do develop the symptoms listed, it is recommended to check with your doctor on your concerns. Early diagnosis and treatment make a difference in the progression of this disease. 

If you know of any family members who have been diagnosed with the hereditary (genetic) form of Transthyretin amyloidosis, you will require a follow-up with the doctors for screening.
