Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy

Common Name(s)

Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy

Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is a neurological disorder characterized by progressive weakness and impaired sensory function in the legs and arms. The disorder is caused by damage to the myelin sheath (the fatty covering that wraps around and protects nerve fibers) of the peripheral nerves. It often presents with symptoms that include tingling or numbness (beginning in the toes and fingers), weakness of the arms and legs, loss of deep tendon reflexes, fatigue, and abnormal sensations. CIDP is closely related to Guillain-Barre syndrome and it is considered the chronic counterpart of that acute disease. Treatment may include corticosteroids, immunosuppressant drugs, plasma exchange, physiotherapy, and/or intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) therapy.

Our mission is simple-Educate, Provide Awareness, and Fund Researchers who are committed to finding a cure. StopCAIDnow(501c3) is focused on providing tools to better educate Doctor’s and the community on AutoInflammatory diseases. There is a need for an understanding of these diseases so proper diagnosis can be made, and treatment can be started. This will help alleviate the inflammation process, 7 the pain that comes with it. Proper diagnosis is urgent for the prognosis of these diseases. If left untreated damage to the tissues, organs & vision(for some) will not only be irreversible but devastating
