NENOIN Symposium: Don’t be numb about Peripheral Neuropathy

You’ve probably heard a lot of people say that Love—or the lack of it has made them feel numb, but in reality, heartbreak isn’t the only thing you should worry about when you feel some numbness and pain.

If the pain you feel is stabbing, burning or tingling, usually in your hands and feet, you may already be suffering from peripheral neuropathy, a result of damage to your peripheral nerves, that often causes weakness, numbness and pain.

Our peripheral nervous system is the one that sends information from our brain and spinal cord (central nervous system) to the rest of our body. Peripheral neuropathy can result from traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic problems, inherited causes and exposure to toxins or diabetes mellitus.

Last week Merck, a leading science and technology company in healthcare, life science and performance materials initiated the NENOIN Symposium, to discuss a new clinical study about peripheral neuropathy with Dr. Rizaldy Pinzon at the Marco Polo Hotel, Ortigas, Manila.

According to the study, Peripheral neuropathy sufferers treated with a combination of three neurotropic B vitamins have experienced improvement on all neuropathy symptoms observed in the study independently from the cause of their neuropathy.

The nervous system allows us to perceive, comprehend, and respond to the world around us. It coordinates voluntary actions like walking and involuntary actions like breathing and swallowing, Nerves, the components of the nervous tissue, enable impulses sensation and motion between the brain, spinal cord and other parts of the body.

Peripheral Neuropathy is a disorder affecting nerves, impairing them in their function of transmitting information and potentially affecting millions of people worldwide. Peripheral Neuropathy can cause various body discomforts, such as tingling, increased or decreased sensitivity to vibration, hot or cold, numbness, muscle weakness and even burning pain. Peripheral Neuropathy can cause “typical symptoms” which appear more often and “atypical symptoms, which are less frequent and can be overlooked or misinterpreted.

Example of symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy: Paresthesia, Numbness, Burning Pain,  Sharp Pain

Symptoms of peripheral neuropathy can seem innocuous but have an impact of the patients’ well-being and their quality of life. Early detection and treatment are crucial as well as effective treatment options, which relieve patients from their symptoms without having to suffer from significant side effects.

Observational, Non-Interventional Clinical Study Confirms the benefits of a Unique Treatment

A new clinical study (Asian Journal of Medical Sciences, lan 2018) has brought a major step forward for nerve health: it has demonstrated that an effective treatment helps relieve all neuropathy symptoms (observed in the study), regardless of the cause of peripheral neuropathy.

Whether the patients were suffering from numbness, pain or paraesthesia (usually painless sensation like tingling or itching, often felt in the arms and feet, they experienced relief on all these symptoms. It was also observed that the longer they used the treatment, the more relief the patients felt from these symptoms.

Finally, it is also very reassuring to see that the treatment has shown a good tolerance profile over the whole duration (3 months).

Neurobion

Neurobion is a B complex vitamin supplement that containing vitamin B1, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin B12 Neurobion contributes to nerve health and help provide relief for people who suffer from: -peripheral nerve problems -anyone at risk of vitamin B deficiency (over-55 years old, vegetarians, diabetics and pre-diabetics and others.)

Neurobion helps to enhance and prolong quality of life when people start experiencing the signs of an impaired nervous system – numbness, tingling or even a sensation of pins and needles can be some of the first external signs. The risk for this condition can increased with age.

Neurobion is highly recommended by Doctors because the effectiveness of the Neurobion is clinically proven to help nerve fibers work well and to relieve the symptoms of damage to the nervous system (neuropathy).

Causes and risk factors of peripheral neuropathy are multiple and include conditions such as:

Genetics Family member suffers from neuropathy); chronic diseases, like diabetes; environmental toxins, alcoholism; nutritional deficiencies e g vitamin B deficiency and other unexplained causes.

Neuroblon Forte treatment: Neurotropic B vitamins combination has been proven effectively for peripheral neuropathy sufferers in relieving symptoms, which have been included into the study independently from the cause of their disease. The symptoms were even more reduced over longer duration of treatment (for a 3 months period tested and the treatment was well tolerated.

Neurobion, the nerve care expert from Merck Consumer Health was first launched in the Philippines in July 1972 and is now the world’s no. 1 in neurotropic B vitamins combination products.

Neurotropic B vitamins are vitamins exerting their benefits on the health of the nervous system. They have an important role in nourishing enriching and helping to regenerate nerves in those who suffer compromised nerve health or peripheral neuropathy.

Neurobion Tablet and Neurobion Forte Tablet is available over the counter while Neurobion Forte Solution for Injection is available by prescription.
