Treatment options

If you are living with hATTR amyloidosis, starting treatment soon after diagnosis is key to managing your symptoms.

There are treatment options available for patients with certain symptoms of hereditary ATTR (hATTR) amyloidosis that address the underlying cause of the disease. These work by:

  • Decreasing the amount of TTR protein made in the body, which can help decrease the amount of amyloid deposits that form
  • Preventing some TTR proteins from taking on an abnormal shape and forming amyloid deposits in the body

Since symptoms of hATTR amyloidosis can worsen quickly over time, managing symptoms is an ongoing process. Work with your doctor to ensure that you are taking the right steps to manage your disease.
