How Is CIDP Diagnosed?
A nerve conduction velocity test is pivotal in the diagnosis of CIDP neuropathy. Unless a nerve conduction velocity test is done, there is no other way to confirm a CIDP diagnosis.
Not all neurologists who performed a nerve conduction test are experts in performing it. It happens frequently where a patient may see a neurologist who has performed a nerve conduction test and yet may only be labeled as neuropathy but not CIDP.
