In alignment with World Diabetes Day 2023, P&G Health, makers of Neurobion, continued its awareness efforts with an innovative #KnowtheSigns campaign to help consumers and healthcare professionals understand the connection between Diabetes and Pre-Diabetes, with Peripheral Neuropathy (PN) and Vitamin B Deficiency for timely detection, treatment, and improved quality of life.
With Diabetes Mellitus being the leading cause of Peripheral Neuropathy (PN), the increasing prevalence of PN is closely linked to the rise in the number of diabetic patients. PN, including Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (DPN), is the result of damage to the nerves impacting the quality of life of people as they cannot go about their daily lives as comfortably.
Symptoms of peripheral Neuropathy include numbness, tingling, prickling, and burning sensations in the hands and feet. B vitamin deficiency and ageing are other high-risk factors, along with diabetes leading to peripheral nerve damage.
Published studies across different countries confirm that up to 80% of patients with Peripheral Neuropathy remain undiagnosed and untreated.
Peripheral Neuropathy affects 34–35% of the UAE population with diabetes. Saudi Arabia ranks the second highest in the Middle East and is seventh in the world for the rate of diabetes. Painful Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy is seen in over 65% of the patients with Diabetes in Saudi Arabia.
Tarek Abdelaziz, General Manager at P&G Health, Middle East, said, "An estimated 1 in 2 Diabetics and 1 in 10 Pre-diabetics are estimated to suffer from Peripheral Neuropathy. Vitamin B Deficiency affects the quality of life of approximately 19% of all people with diabetes. A key barrier we have identified is the lack of awareness about these conditions, which leads to worsening of symptoms, delay in seeking treatment, and a resultant impact on quality of life. Neurobion #KnowtheSigns campaign is a step towards health awareness in the UAE and Saudi Arabia. For the first time, we have leveraged Artificial Intelligence to make these invisible conditions of PN and vitamin B deficiency visible and more relatable to consumers. With this effort, we hope to help people understand the condition by shedding light on daily struggles and symptoms. Not many people are aware that early diagnoses can help enable better treatment outcomes and better quality of life, and damaged nerves can be regenerated if nerve care damage has not progressed too far."
Neurobion #KnowtheSigns campaign includes a virtual 'See what they feel' Photo Exhibit. Real-life day-to-day patient experiences across countries have been brought to life using Artificial Intelligence to help consumers identify early signs of nerve damage and vitamin B deficiency.
Further, the company is partnering with pharmacy chains in Saudi Arabia and UAE to create awareness among consumers, especially diabetics, on the importance of early diagnosis and treatment of Neuropathy and how therapy with B Vitamins such as Neurobion can help in relieving symptoms of tingling and numbness and support healthy nerves.
