Reply To: Dx GBS but thinking its CIDP

Yes, many people. One way of looking at it is is that GBS is acute. That is, it happens right now, immediately and CIDP is considered the chronic, or long lasting, version of the acute phase. One guideline is if the symptoms persist for more than 8 weeks, or return and continue, or worsen, it is considered CIDP.

Generally speaking, treatment is the same. I recommend you read the article, on this website called ” All About CIDP.”


Or, at the top of this page click on CIDP.
