Simplifying Therapy for CIDPDiplomat supports patients throughout treatment.
People develop CIDP because of damage to myelin sheaths on their nerves. Myelin sheaths are fatty coverings that protect nerves and help them function properly. As a result, people who have CIDP can have tingling and weakness in their arms and legs.
CIDP can occur at any time, but it’s usually diagnosed in young adulthood. Males are more likely than females to develop it.
The course of CIDP varies. Some people will recover on their own, while others will have symptoms throughout their life. Early treatment helps people go into remission, meaning they live without the effects of CIDP for long periods of time.
CIDP is also called chronic relapsing polyneuropathy.
