Amyloidosis – Symptoms & Causes

Inflammatory Disease

Serum amyloidosis happens when your body experiences inflammatory activities, such as swelling or irritation. Therefore, people with some inflammatory diseases can be at higher risk of developing this health issue. These include tuberculosis, inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and other forms of arthritis. Chronic infections which last for an extended period can also cause the same effects. This trigger is more common in many developing countries. It mostly affects your kidneys, but damages can also be found in the heart, liver, or intestine. [2]
