Support Group for N.Ireland?
« on: February 02, 2020, 01:28:46 am »
I know there are a core of amyloid patients in the country who may or may not be aware of the treatment options available to us. I'm a newbie, Dxd With hATTR in Aug 2019 and hoping to start patisiran this month. What about getting together as a group to ensure doctors are aware of amyloidosis possibilities in practice and to give a shoulder for the new Dx? I live in Belfast and am somewhat restricted by a need for 24/7 oxygen but I'm ready to help. Contact me either through the forum or
Thanks for listening.

Hi Barry.

My name is Martin. Hope you are keeping well and responding with the Partisirin. Have just been diagnosed with ATTR Hereditary Amyiodosis through the NAC at The Royal Free.

I live in Leeds, West Yorkshire and am interested to see how you are doing since August.

Look forward to hearing from you either through the forum or at coyleshouse@btinternet,com


PS would be happy to make contact with anyone else either diagnosed or suspected with TTR Hereditary Amyloidosis  (T60A)
