Are there good support groups for hereditary transthyretin amyloidosis?

Several organizations for hereditary ATTR amyloidosis provide support, information, advice, referrals to physicians and medical centers, and up-to-date information on research and treatments. Support groups include: the Amyloidosis Foundation and the Amyloidosis Support Groups. The Amyloidosis Research Consortium is a nonprofit organization dedicated to address critical needs in clinical trials and related research for systemic amyloid diseases.

Some organizations can provide information about specific symptoms associated with hereditary transthyretin amyloidosis, including the Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy or the American Heart Association. The American Liver Foundation can provide information about a liver transplant, which is a treatment option for people with hereditary transthyretin amyloidosis. This is because the abnormal transthyretin protein that causes the disorder is made in the liver.
