Many types of amyloidosis can affect patients’ gastrointestinal (GI) tract, causing painful, annoying, or even debilitating symptoms. It is common for patients with amyloidosis to experience GI involvement and in fact, some patients may have GI-related symptoms as their most predominant sign or chief complaint.
This booklet discusses the various impacts that amyloidosis may have on a patient’s gastrointestinal (GI) tract, the symptoms associated with GI involvement, and potential management techniques. We encourage you to contact your health care provider if you have specific questions about your diagnosis of amyloidosis and the gastrointestinal symptoms you may be experiencing.
