LPT= increased lost productive time
- Chronic Migraine (CM) is remarkably disabling compared to EM in terms of lost productive time among employed adults with migraine.
Chronic Migraine (CM) sufferers experience greater LPT in the workplace than those suffering from EM. This study showed that in the age interval 35-44 years, the LPT of CM sufferers was 215.3 hours higher per year than those suffering from EM. The amount of LPT among CM increased over age groups while it remained relatively low and stable among EM.
- Chronic Migraine (CM) is more costly than EM in the workplace
This study also found that cost estimates increased for CM across age cohorts while remaining relatively constant for EM. On an annual basis for those aged 35-44 years, this translated to the LPT for CM sufferers being $5,352.36 higher per year than those with EM. The average cost of LPT per week was based on 2005 census median income estimates.”
Yep, that would be me
