Complete treatment regimen
for diabetic nerve pain
With the epidemic of diabetes and shingles, more and more people are suffering from pain due to nerve damage. This pain is one of the most debilitating for patients and frustrating for practitioners, as it is difficult to diagnose and responds poorly to standard therapies.
According to the Neuropathy Association upwards of 20 million Americans suffer from nerve pain. The condition results from damage to or a dysfunction of the nervous system. Diabetic nerve pain occurs when high blood sugar levels damage nerves, producing symptoms in about 40 per cent of diabetics. It mostly affects hands and feet with symptoms of numbness, tingling and pain, but can include burning and cold sensations. Shingles (herpes zoster) can leave lasting and painful nerve damage at the site of outbreak.
It's important for patients that have not found relief from this debilitating pain in traditional therapies to have access to new treatments options once they're made available.
Origin BioMed Inc., a Halifax-based manufacturer of over-the-counter topical drug products, has recently partnered with leading pharmacies across the country to provide people suffering from diabetic neuropathy and shingles pain with its topical pain relief product Neuragen and its line of support products NeuraGEL and NeuroHelp Essential.
An FDA-registered over-the-counter drug, Neuragen consists of a proprietary topical preparation used primarily for diabetic pain, post-shingles pain, fibromyalgia and other chronic nerve pain.
In a recent clinical trial for diabetic peripheral nerve pain, 70 per cent of patients noted improvement in pain within minutes of applying Neuragen. In a second trial for post-shingles pain, similar results were reported where 68 per cent of patients had pain relief within 15 minutes.
In an effort to offer nerve pain patients with a complete treatment regimen for their pain management, Origin has coupled its effective Neuragen topical treatment with new offerings NeuraGEL and NeuroHelp Essential.
