About prognosis:

The 'prognosis' of Amyloidosis usually refers to the likely outcome of Amyloidosis. The prognosis of Amyloidosis may include the duration of Amyloidosis, chances of complications of Amyloidosis, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period for Amyloidosis, survival rates, death rates, and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Amyloidosis. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.
