However, lack of awareness about the proper usage, quality concerns, and overlapping claims about benefits associated due to the usage of medical foods have restricted the growth of medical foods market.
The difference between functional foods, dietary supplements, and medical foods is still not clear for several healthcare practitioners. Therefore, errors in prescription or use of substitute products is a major trend observed in the market. Furthermore, the regulatory uncertainty pertaining to the classification of medical foods as a separate category has also affected the market growth.
The prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetic neuropathy, Alzheimer's, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and several metabolic diseases is increasing rapidly The risk of neuropathy significantly increases with increase in age, changes in diet, and adoption of an unhealthy lifestyle. Some of the symptoms usually associated with neuropathy include numbness, tingling, and pain in the feet, arms, & legs. Furthermore, some of the key products used to treat this condition include Percura capsules, METANX, and Foltanx.
The growing number of patients with Alzheimer's disease is also increasing rapidly. As per the estimates published by the Alzheimer's Society, in the U.S., an estimated 5.4 million Americans across all ages are suffering from this disease. On further analysis of the data, it is observed that nearly 5.2 million people are aged 65 and above. Thus, rise in the geriatric population is also a major factor driving the medical foods market.
