Wild-type ATTR: Ralph’s story
Ralph, a patient with Wild-Type ATTR amyloidosis, describes his journey to diagnosis. A commercial and technical diver, Ralph’s bilateral carpal tunnel was often attributed to his career. After multiple doctors misdiagnosed Ralph, one physician sent a tissue sample out for a biopsy, which led to Ralph’s amyloidosis diagnosis. From there, a journey of self-education, empowerment, and treatment have helped him take on amyloidosis and keep living, despite the challenges of this difficult disease.
