Kidney Amyloidosis

Description of the disease

Kidney amyloidosis is a rare condition in which amyloid proteins accumulate in the kidney tissue, leading to disruption of their functions.


Kidney amyloidosis is divided into several types depending on the chemical structure of the amyloid proteins.


  • Protein in the urine
  • Edema
  • High blood pressure


The causes of kidney amyloidosis may be genetic, as well as associated with other conditions such as diabetes.


Diagnosis involves kidney biopsy, urine and blood tests, as well as instrumental research methods.


Treatment of kidney amyloidosis is aimed at alleviating symptoms, using drugs that promote the dissolution of amyloid deposits, and in some cases, kidney transplantation may be necessary.


Prevention of kidney amyloidosis involves timely treatment of the underlying disease requiring kidney biopsy.


Kidney amyloidosis is treated by a nephrologist.
