Yeah, everyone said there was no way to reverse it. But, if you dig deep enough you can find information that says otherwise. Besides that, I have done it.
Like I said, it’s a very long and slow process. I started in early 2011. Very low carb and working my way to normal blood sugar levels. Eight months later I could tell that something was changing. Before that it felt like I must be wasting my time.
About a year and a half after that I had enough improvement to say that I might be able to get back to something like normal. I kept on seeing gradual improvements and in fact, I am still progressing. I would say that I am now about 75 to 80% of normal as far as my neuropathy goes.
Everything is much better. Even my autonomic symptoms like gastroparesis and very dry and fragile skin. Just to name a couple. Everything is much better than it was. At the same time nothing is like it used to be. I’m not really expecting that I will be 100% back to where I was at any point in the future. But I hope I get closer.
As far as glucose in the ALA, I’ve never heard that and I saw no such effects. I found 200 unit capsules out VitaCost online because I was taking 1200 units per day. I did not want to take a dozen capsules. It was also cheaper than I can get it even at the local discount supplement store.
You do need to make sure that whatever you buy is listed as R ALA. It must begin with the letter R. If it simply says ALA it can actually be counterproductive. There is a ton of information on this online and I really recommend that you look into it.
