You may consider asking some of the following questions:
Based on my symptoms, medical history, and family history, do you think ATTR-CM could be the cause of my heart failure?
Do you have experience diagnosing ATTR-CM, or can you recommend a local specialist?
Do I need additional tests to confirm my diagnosis? If so, whom at your office should I speak with, and will the results of my test impact my treatment plan?
How quickly could this condition progress?
I understand this condition expresses itself in a variety of ways. Should I seek additional specialists to be a part of my care team?
Are there any patient support or advocacy groups you recommend for emotional and mental support or additional information on ATTR-CM?
If ATTR-CM is determined to be the cause of my heart failure, what treatments are available?
