Can multiple myeloma cause heart problems?
Multiple myeloma can indirectly lead to heart problems. Amyloidosis, a condition where abnormal proteins deposit in organs, including the heart, can be associated with myeloma. Some myeloma treatments might also have cardiac side effects. Moreover, kidney issues caused by myeloma can lead to fluid overload, stressing the heart. Regular cardiac evaluations are crucial for patients, especially when on treatments known to impact heart health.
