Tests and diagnosis discussion for Amyloidosis:

One common sign of amyloidosis is the presence of abnormally high amounts of protein in the urine, a condition known as proteinuria. Healthy kidneys prevent protein from entering the urine, so the presence of protein may be a sign that the kidneys aren't working properly. A physician who finds large amounts of protein in the urine may also perform a biopsy--take a small sample of tissue for examination under a microscope--to confirm amyloidosis.
