Westford, USA, Aug. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to the World Health Organization, diabetes affects 422 million people in 2021, with half of all cases occurring in low- and middle-income countries. Rates are projected to increase to 592 million by 2035, if current trends continue in the global diabetic neuropathy market. The global prevalence of diabetes is projected to double by 2035 due to the increasing population and obesity rates. However, significant progress has been made in recent years due to improved diagnosis and treatment options.

One of the main challenges faced in efforts to combat diabetes is that it often goes undiagnosed for a long time. In many cases, people with diabetes don't experience any symptoms until the disease has progressed quite far. This is especially true in developing countries where there is a lack of access to proper medical care. As a result, many people with diabetes in the global diabetic neuropathy market don't get the help they need until it. It is one of the major reasons behind the increasing prevalence of diabetic neuropathy. This is especially true in people with type II diabetes.

Antidepressants are On High Demand for Reducing Pain Diabetic Neuropathy

In the last few years, SkyQuest observed that the antidepressant medications are increasingly being consumed by patients with diabetic neuropathy across the global diabetic neuropathy market. It has also been found that large number of physicians are recommending the medicine to their patients considering higher level of effectiveness of these medicines as compared to other available treatment options or drugs.

In a recent study, patients who took escitalopram, known as a SSRI antidepressant, experienced a 62% reduction in pain compared to patients who took a placebo. In addition to this, the global diabetic neuropathy market is witnessing a strong demand for duloxetine (Cymbalta) and venlafaxine (Effexor).

Another study was published in the journal PLOS One. “Our findings support the growing consensus that antidepressants can be very helpful in the treatment of circadian [pain] syndromes and neuropathic pain,” said study author Dr. Carlo Cicuttini from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. The study included 169 patients with type 2 diabetes and chronic pain due to diabetic neuropathy. Patients were randomly assigned to receive either escitalopram or a placebo pill for 12 weeks. They were assessed at baseline, 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 8 weeks, and 12 weeks on a scale from 0 to 10 measuring their pain threshold and quality of life. Those taking Escitalopram showed significant reductions in both parameters at all time points compared to those taking the placebo. Interestingly, the effectiveness of escitalopram was not dependent on age, sex or ethnic background of the patients.
