In brief: Will address CIDP

Short for chronic inflammatory demyelinating poly-radiculo-neuritis, an immune condition of the peripheral nervous system.
If you do have it, and we have seen it associated with diabetes, it should best be treated with intravenous immune globulin. Should do just fine and live a normal life if all of this is treated and controlled.
