Alpha Lipoic Acid for Diabetic Neuropathy of the Feet
Diabetic neuropathy can make you extremely sensitive to touch, and commonly causes a tingling or burning sensation. Studies show that oxidative stress, which is an imbalance of free radicals and your body’s ability to detoxify itself, is linked to diabetic neuropathy. Luckily, antioxidants like alpha lipoic acid can prevent or even reverse the progression of neuropathy, and may even alleviate pain altogether.*
As a general antioxidant, 30 mg of alpha lipoic acid are recommended daily. However, up to 200-300 mg a day can be taken to treat diabetic neuropathy. Talk with your doctor about how much alpha lipoic acid you should take, and follow his or her instructions for your personal care.
