Hi @jenrico, Welcome to Connect.
We hosted a webinar last June called “Amyloidosis – What Patients Need to Know” https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/amyloidosis-what-patients-need-to-know. In this webinar Mayo Clinic cardiologist Martha Grogan, MD, and hematologist Prashant Kapoor, MD, provided an overview of amyloidosis, including tests and evaluations, treatment options and how to manage your symptoms.

I’d like to introduce you to @gaetanche @mvpdda and @tmousetis who also have AL amyloidosis. Hopefully they will join this discussion thread and share their experiences about treatment and managing symptoms.

In the meantime, can you tell us a bit more about yourself. What, if any, symptoms are you experiencing? What led to your being diagnosed?
