Hereditary ATTR (hATTR) amyloidosis is just one type of amyloidosis. It’s important to know which
type you have to determine your best plan of action.
The key to hATTR amyloidosis is in its name. It’s an inherited condition and although anyone can be
at risk, it’s more common in certain ethnicities. Knowing your family history and understanding the
symptoms could help create a clearer path to diagnosis.
hATTR amyloidosis is a rare disease but its symptoms are often similar to those of other conditions,
leading to potential delays in diagnosis. Timing is critical because the sooner you are diagnosed,
the sooner you could get access to treatment. The good news is, genetic testing can determine if you
have the condition.
