My dad has been diagnosed with auto immune Cerebellitis, is there anything to help him. He only has partial VA insurance which limits his ability to get the help he needs

Hi Dr. Mo here.

I am assuming that he is already on steroids or other immune modulating medications?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
They tried that therapy, but only for a 3 week basis. He is on nothing and keeps falling at home.
Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 10 months ago.

Unfortunately the medicines that help the most are the anti-immune drugs and of course steroids.

They are tried for several months before we can determine if they are effective.

And if they fail we might bring him in for IV medications, usually done 1x per month.
