My neurologist (who has treated many CIDP patients; other neuros refer patients to him) says it takes 6 months to judge how much IVIG is benefitting a patient, and the only real measure of progress is an EMG. The EMG shows clearly whether nerve damage has stopped, slowed down, or has continued at the pre-treatment pace. Blood tests won’t show any of that. You might ask your primary care physician to do the blood tests if you’re concerned about them.
