There is indeed a great deal of variation in CIDP and it is not possible to know at this early stage how it will turn out for you. All that you can do is to seek the best treatment you can get, and to try to remain optomistic. Many people with CIDP respond well to treatment. My own case seems to be stable with only minor residual impairment. You should not assume that you will not be able to manage as long as you are able to get proper treatment.

Although CIDP most frequently appears in older males, it does affect persons of both sexes in all age groups.
