Amyloidosis

Today, replacing the upper femur with a titanium prosthesis is a frequent operation to repair a hip degenerated by arthrosis, for example. Generally people feel very well after such an operation. But this operation has after-effects that are not well known.

Cutting the femur head to add the prosthesis is like, by analogy, destroying a factory canteen… workers can no longer feed themselves and therefore no longer work. In a normal state, the bone structure and marrow absorb what they need from the lymph to convert it into amino acids. Then these generic amino acids are transformed into specific amino acids and proteins (red and white blood cells, etc.) by the interaction of the femur structure with minerals. When the head of the femur is cut, the bone marrow remains intact – and this is precisely what causes the production of generic amino acids to continue, but not their transformation into non-specific proteins; these cannot remain in the bone marrow and must absolutely be deposited somewhere. Then they are transported and deposited in different organs; which causes death by renal or – cardiac failure, etc..

Once part of the femur is planed, doctors may find, perhaps several years later, huge protein deposits in different parts of the body and the patient dying. Medicine calls this condition Amylose (amyloidosis). It is a rare disease characterized by the presence of insoluble protein deposits in tissues. The main organs affected are the kidney, heart, digestive tract, liver, skin, peripheral nerve and eye, but amyloidosis can affect all organs, as well as the central nervous system. Amyloidosis is a severe disease that can progress to the destruction of affected organs.
