Reducing Neuropathy Discomfort with Alpha Lipoic Acid
Hi, this is Silvester and I'm goingto talk to you about another one of the supplements that we use in our patients who have diabeticneuropathy and that's called alpha lipoic acid. Alpha lipoic acid has been used for20 years, treating a lot of different conditions: HIV, sciatica, cancer, liver problems, hepatitis,strokes, vascular disease, diabetes, cataracts, glaucoma, and multiple sclerosis. Also, it'sbeen used in patients who have Alzheimer's, to try to help them somewhat. It's not completelyeffective in any of those things it's a supplement and used as an adjunctive treatmentfor all of those things. It also plays an important role in nerve metabolism, becausewhat alpha lipoic acid does, is it works in
a thing called the Krebs Cycle in your cell.What the Krebs Cycle is is it's the cycle that generates most of the energy that a cellneeds. If you think of it like a gas tank in a car,alpha lipoid acid supports putting fuel in that gas tank. The energy requirements incells varies a lot on the type of the cell. Your skin cells don't require very muchenergy, muscle cells require some, tendons require very little because they just sitthere, but nerve cells are always using energy. They're the most nerve sensitive cell inyour body. By taking alpha lipoid acid and supporting that fuel tank, you can actuallyincrease your nerve's ability to function
normally and to heal. The other thing thatalpha lipoid acid does is after you take enough that your Krebs Cycle is full, it then becomesan antioxidant. If you do some research on oxidative stress, we think that plays a significantrole in a lot of different disease processes including neuropathy. Alpha lipoic acid isa supplement that we use quite frequently in our patients with diabetic neuropathy,and what we tell them is that they've got to be a little bit careful, because alphalipoic acid can lower your blood sugar. It's a benefit if you have a little trouble withyour blood sugar, it's probably not a benefit if you're under good control. Also, it cancause a little problem with your thyroid.
Levothyroxine can go down and also you probablyshouldn't take it if you're having chemotherapy or radiation therapy because it helps cellsheal, and the treatment you're undergoing to try to get rid of those problems, the reasonyou're going to go on chemotherapy or radiation therapy is to kill cells, and so you probablydon't want to take alpha lipoic acid if you're getting those.Alpha lipoic acid has been shown to be pretty effective in helping patients with neuropathy.Thanks for listening!.
