Reply To: GBS or CIDP from Statins?

March 4, 2012 at 3:25 am

GBS and related acquired peripheral neuropathies have been around a lot longer than statin drugs. Guillain, Barré and Strohl described GBS in 1916. Statins were developed in the 1970s.

Many people take statins. Some of those people are susceptible to GBS or CIDP and may develop the disorder. It is not helpful, in my opinion, to be looking for scapegoats. The way to recovery is through treatment, not blame, and that is where my attention is directed.
