Guillain-Barre Syndrome Treatment in Kerala, India
Because it can quickly deteriorate, Guillain-Barre syndrome is a dangerous disease that needs emergency care. The likelihood of a successful outcome increases with the timing of the appropriate treatment.
At, Maurya Hospital & Rehabilitation centre we help patients with Guillain Barre Syndrome.
Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is a rare neurological disorder. The immune system attacks the nervous system mistakenly. GBS may range from mild cases with weakness to nearly devastating paralysis that leaves the person unable to even breathe independently.
In Guillain-Barre syndrome, the immune system — which usually attacks only invading organisms — begins attacking the nerves.The nerves’ protective covering (myelin sheath) is damaged in AIDP, the most common form of Guillain-Barre syndrome in the U.S. The damage usually prevents the nerves from transmitting signals to the brain, which causes weakness, numbness or paralysis.
