Reply To: Alcohol and CIDP

The worse flare I have had since being diagnosed corresponded with a vacation week where I consumed more alcohol than I had been previously to that week (2 glasses of wine in one evening at the max). I had already reduced consumption because increasingly smaller amounts of alcohol were causing me increasingly prominent GI issues (inflammatory response?). I’m now to the point that an ounce or two of wine causes me issues, and I suspect wine played a part in that bad flare, so I’m off the sauce unfortunately.
