Amyloidosis is a serious health condition that often goes undiagnosed – leading to improper management and heavy symptom burden on patients and families. New research presented at the 2021 American Geriatrics Society’s annual meeting shows the benefit of early diagnosis, the role of genetics, and the benefit of an amyloid specialist. Dr. Sharon Levine, MD, AGSF, Section Head, Geriatric Medicine, Division of Palliative Care and Geriatric Medicine in Boston, MA, and Andrea Kurkul, RP, Nurse Practitioner in Boston, MA, are here to discuss these findings and their study, “A Puzzle Finally Solved”.
Dr. Sharon Levine, MD is a Geriatric Medicine Specialist in Boston, MA and has over 37 years of experience in the medical field. She graduated from Yeshiva U, College of Medicine medical school in 1984. She is affiliated with Boston Medical Center.
