CIDP in the DFW Metroplex

November 14, 2008 at 7:37 am

Yesterday I had my infusion at the Texas Neurology Infusion Center. In the room I was in there were 12 people. Six of the 12 had CIDP. I talked with the people on each side of me. One has had it for six years, the other for two. I know one person on the other side of the room has had it for four years. I did not hear the other two mention how long they have had it. I did not get to talk with them, I had just heard them say they have CIDP. I think I was the only one of the six that was diagnosed this year.

I do not know if the statistics that have been quoted are for diagnosis in a given year or total individuals per 100,000. Anyway I thought this a large number for our area, considering you mentioned your dr is treating three new patients this year.
