B. Amyloidosis. It is when an abnormal protein called amyloid builds up in your tissues and organs. When it does, it affects their shape and how they work.  Amyloidosis is a serious health problem that can lead to life-threatening organ failure.. It is caused by changes in proteins that make them insoluble, leading them to deposit in organs and tissues. These amyloid proteins accumulate mainly in the tissue space between cells. Changes in proteins that make them amyloid proteins occur because of gene mutations in DNA within cells
