Alpha lipoic acid

Posted on Jun 01, 2008

3 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Alpha lipoic acid should be considered an essential medication for every person with diabetes or pre-diabetes, since it has been shown to decrease progression of diabetic neuropathy, diabetic eye disease and diabetic kidney disease. In clinical trials in Germany, doses as high as 1200 mg were given, but I have seen better clinical responses to 100 mg a day (decreased neuropathic pain). A rare patient will get joint aches from higher doses, and for them the 50 mg dose, daily or every other day, may allow some of the benefits. This is the only preparation at 50 mg that I could locate.

Vitamin D liquid

Posted on Jun 01, 2008

Purchased at iHerb

Is palatable, if mixed with a juice. We need a more concentrated form for gastric bypass patients, as this requires a pretty large volume to get only 400 I.U. Current recommeded daily intake (by most experts - not the USDA, yet) is in the range of 1000-2000 I.U. daily.
