Healint Announces Research Showing Increase in Anxiety and Depression

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 23 agosto 2018

Healint, the developer and owner of Migraine Buddy©, the world’s largest migraine tracking and research platform used by more than one million people, today announced new insights on the prevalence of anxiety and depression in conjunction with migraine in the US. These insights are an extension of the study on the impact of migraine on work productivity, presented together with Novartis Pharma AG at the Fourth Congress of the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) on June 16, 2018, and based on the self-reported data-points shared by Migraine Buddy© application users.Migraine is a debilitating neurological condition that affects 39 million women, men and children in the U.S. and 1 billion individuals worldwide. “Clearly, migraine is a very common condition but unfortunately has been significantly underestimated and often ignored,” says Francois Cadiou, founder and chief executive officer of Healint. “Supported by our one million person strong Migraine Buddy© community, we are studying the link between migraine, depression and anxiety with leading researchers on a global scale. Innovative technology, as implemented in Migraine Buddy©, can help patients and their doctors better understand, diagnose and treat this complex condition for the best possible outcomes. Uncovering just how much migraines affect such a large part of the population can help shed light on this global burden.”
To further support people living with migraines, Healint has formed a global alliance with Novartis Pharma AG which includes joint support of the Migraine Buddy© mobile application to support the patient-physician conversation which may ultimately lead to a better patient care.
Additionally, Novartis has launched a pilot program in Switzerland which includes free migraine coaching and access to an exclusive version of the Migraine Buddy© application to its employees for the purpose of symptom tracking and delivery of digital coaching elements, including personalized health and lifestyle advice.Early results from an experimental study conducted by Healint show that a combination of lifestyle and dietary interventions can lead to up to 60 percent reduction in monthly migraine days in people receptive to known migraine food triggers, such as amines, salicylates and glutamate.
