Hi.
Primary systemic amyloidosis involves the deposition of insoluble monoclonal immunoglobulin light chains or L-chain fragments in various tissues.
All the above symptoms including increased serum creatinine is because of Primary systemic amyloidosis.
Alternative medicine is not effective in Primary systemic amyloidosis.
New drugs are available for treatment of this disease.(like Lenolidomide)
Please do not waste further time, very effective treatment is now available for this disease as compared previously.
You can consult medical oncologist.
You can consult your mother to medical college in Chennai.
Take care.
