Babesia is a blood parasite in the same family as maleria which causes red blood cells to burst. It is also a tickborne disease (TBA). Many individuals with TBA’s repsond well to IVIG as it boost the immune system when the illness had evaded it.

While this may be an area that you have already explored with your drs, I mention it in case you have not. Otherwise, I know nothing abt changes in RBC’s with regard to CIDP.

I wish you well,
