Michael Klim Rare Disease

Australian swimming legend Michael Klim has shared insights on his adjustment to living with a rare and debilitating neurological illness.

The 44-year-old was given the diagnosis of chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) in 2020. This condition causes sensory loss and absent reflexes because the body attacks the myelin sheath that surrounds the nerve fibres.

After his health started to deteriorate quickly, Klim made his illness public for the first time in July.

In July, Mr. Klim wrote on his blog, “In 2019 I underwent an ankle fusion operation in Sydney and started IVIG treatment (intravenous immunoglobulin) to minimise the effect of the inflammatory disorder that targets the immune system.”

“My health quickly started to decline. I was having problems with both my CIDP and my (degenerative) back.

I began to wobble, I was unable to climb the stairs without assistance from my spouse Michelle and the kids, and I was forced to spend the entire day lying in bed due to excruciating back pain.
