A common chronic condition
Peripheral neuropathy is a common disorder affecting 20 million Americans1, that occurs when there is damage to the bodily system that transmits information between the brain and every other part of the body.
Over 100 different types of this disease have been identified, and symptoms can include:
- prickling sensations
The loss of sensation associated with this chronic condition can lead to issues with slow-healing foot and leg wounds.
Peripheral Neuropathy Impact
This chronic condition is associated with a 20% increase in healthcare costs, and those costs increase over time2. Those suffering from this disease have a 16x increased chance they will experience a lower-limb amputation. In addition, this chronic condition increases fall risk and opioid use3.
