Aggravated my thyroid autoimmune response

I am sure this a wonderful supplement. I wanted to take it for its antioxidant benefits. However, I have Hasimoto's autoimmune thyroiditis, and when I took this Alpha Lipoic Acid supplement, my thyroid swelled up markedly (which happens when I eat something that aggravates the autoimmune thyroid response, such as wheat). For those of you who have thyroid conditions, I would take ALA with a good deal of caution & watch carefully for thyroid effects. My body cannot tolerate this particular supplement.

The first and second day I took this medicine I could not believe the difference in my feet. I still have a problem with the neuropathy, but it is much better than before. A neurologist recommended this pill for me.If Fern

This has become my alpha lipoic acid. That it is 200 mg works well for me so I can take it twice a day for better assimilation. I like the veggie caps.
Very good product
