It could mean the difference between months or years…and the amount of residual damages to the patient.[/B][/COLOR] The secret is a better education of the symptoms of this devastating and catastrophic disease to all doctors so a quick diagnosis can be made and treatment with either IVIG or Plasmapheresis can be started as quickly as possible to prevent long term residual damages.
