Answer

No specific dietary recommendations for patients with amyloid disease exist. Patients with chronic kidney disease should be managed by a nutritionist who has experience with such patients, maintaining appropriate levels of sodium and protein intake.

Occasionally, patients have significant gastrointestinal symptoms. In these cases, attention should be paid to maintaining caloric intake with minimal gastrointestinal distress.
