The body can encounter a peculiar and rare condition in which, abnormal proteins within the body known as amyloid, get deposited in different bodily tissues and organs. These abnormal proteins have a tendency to become amino acids, but they gradually fold themselves and take a three dimensional structure. If these three dimensional and folded amyloids come together and start to perform different functions by themselves, they can stop the normal functions of the cells and tissues and organs. This condition is called Amyloidosis. Once the proteins start to club together, it becomes quite difficult to break them down. Amyloidosis is a very rare disease that occurs in only 1,500 to 2,500 people in the United States of America.
