Peripheral neuropathy caregivers play a critical role in helping those suffering from this neurological disorder. Peripheral neuropathy’s most common symptoms include burning, pain, prickling, and tingling. Over time, the condition leads to loss of sensation in the feet and hands, which can prove debilitating. For example, many patients lose the ability to drive, impacting their capacity to live independently. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
As a pharmacist or clinician, you can support peripheral neuropathy caregivers by helping them identify the condition and find therapeutic solutions. Caregiving requires effort and time, especially with patients in the latter stages of neuropathy. But pharmacists and clinicians can help relieve this burden by assisting caregivers in identifying the condition and pursuing effective treatment solutions.
Here’s what you need to know about supporting those suffering from neuropathy and their caregivers.
Helping Peripheral Neuropathy Caregivers
Peripheral neuropathy is a degenerative neurological disease that makes daily activities increasingly difficult for those with conditions such as diabetes. Left untreated, it leads to loss of independence and increasing caregiver burdens. But what many patients and caregivers don’t realize is that there are new interventions for peripheral neuropathy that have shown incredible promise, especially for those with diabetes-related loss of sensation.
As a pharmacist or clinician, you occupy the front lines when identifying and offering therapeutic options for peripheral neuropathy. You interface with the public every day and have a unique ability to start a conversation about peripheral neuropathy and cutting-edge treatment protocols. We can help you begin this conversation, and we have the proven resources to identify the best candidates for these interventions. In the process, you’ll lift the burden many caregivers face by helping them keep their patients independent longer.
Easy as 1, 2, 3
Once candidates are identified, treatment options prove as easy as 1, 2, 3. The first step in the treatment process is the utilization of nitric oxide test strips. These test strips will help you identify nitric oxide deficiencies, which high-quality nitric oxide supplementation can remedy in as little as 24 hours. With our NeuropaCare kits, you’ll receive the strips and supplements to get patients on the road to a better quality of life and greater independence. The third step in this process is the use of our light therapy device, NeuropaCalm, designed to treat the hands and feet. This multi-faceted approach represents the most effective and cost-effective way to address peripheral neuropathy.
Peripheral neuropathy caregivers play an active role in helping those they care for stick to this new and effective therapeutic regimen. In the process, they can rest assured they’re taking steps to make caregiving activities more accessible and effective. After all, patients who can live more independently and even drive are much easier to assist with daily activities.
As a pharmacist or clinician, caregivers are your clients. You see them every day, which means zero acquisition cost and the ability to earn $1,500 to $2,000 per new patient. Best of all, you’ll take an active role in easing peripheral neuropathy caregiver burdens. Find out more about NeuropaCalm Treatment and how to bring it to your facility.
