Reply To: Premedication with CIDP and Dental care
I have had CIDP for 8 years and have never been asked to do pre-antibiotics by my dentist. I don’t have a suppressed immune system, my immune system has gone crazy and is attacking the nerve coating but it does not affect my immune system. Your dentist is misinformed and thinks all autoimmune diseases affect the immune system. They don’t. Actually since I get IVIG every 5 weeks and have been getting IVIG every 5 weeks for 9 years I swear my immune system is better then it ever was. I NEVER get sick from colds and flu any more. I think it is because of the IVIG I get but not sure either. So talk to your dentist and ask him to read up on CIDP.
