Survey Highlights Significant
Misconceptions of People with
Diabetes and Healthcare Providers

More than three-quarters (77%) of people with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) report that their symptoms impact their daily activities.

However, healthcare providers (HCPs) estimate only half as many (38%) of their patients with DPN are impacted daily.

The online survey polled 1,004 people living with Type I and Type II diabetes experiencing DPN symptoms and 500 healthcare providers. Healthcare providers surveyed were not necessarily providing care to people with diabetes who participated in this survey.
