If you or someone in your life has been recently diagnosed with CIDP, you have a lot of questions! The GBS-CIDP Foundation International continually works to update and consolidate information here.
These pages provide an overview of the chronic but treatable disorder of peripheral nerves called Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy or CIDP. The symptoms, causes of nerve damage, tests to confirm the diagnosis and the variety of treatments available are all discussed here for you, a loved one or friend with CIDP.
You can also connect with us for support for local volunteers in your area, local Chapter meetings and community events in your area. We also bring you the latest stories and research that is currently in the news.
Increasing awareness of CIDP starts with those in the medical profession. Whether doctor, nurse, or physical therapist, we have the information you need. Nothing feels as helpless as not being able to stop the pain of someone you love. When one person in your family is sick so is the whole family. There is hope and help here.
