Reply To: CIDP related swallowing problems – any treatment?

We have no experience with the swallowing issue, as our swallowing returned after our first loading dose. From your description of her progress and the regimen she is on for treatment and PT, it sounds like your doc is knowledgeable and doing everything possible. Your mother’s progress sounds great. The swallowing should come back eventually, healing typically starts at the feet and works it’s way up, a mm a day, provided there are no set backs. Is she in a nursing home? Do they do speech therapy for her? Have additional swallow tests been done to see if her abilities have changed and maybe she can accept puree? Keep strong, keep us posted.
