Alpha Lipoic Acid
Jun 1, 2003
Are there any studies to support the use of Alpha Lipoic in the treatment of hiv or hiv drug related neuropathies -- including numbness, tingling, pain, etc?
Response from Dr. Henry
I have not seen a convincing study documenting benefit of alpha lipoic acid (an anti-oxidant)for HIV neuropathies. For some ideas about the use of alternative approaches for neuropathy I suggest checking out www.daair.org or Jon Kaiser's book Healing HIV. KH
