I have used alpha lipoic acid for a little over a year now for assistance in regulating my blood sugar levels. I recently ran out, and within a couple of days saw my test numbers go up. I highly recommend the use of this product. I take it just before eating.

I take 600mg once a day. I've actually off my metphormin and insulin now. If you take, please monitor your blood sugar levels very carefully, especially while on other meds. If you are taking other prescription drugs please contact your doctor about any known interactions between them.

I FOUND ALPHA-LIPOIC ACID HELPFUL IN REDUCING THE PAIN IN MY FEET AT NIGHT. MY SISTER, WHO IS ALSO A DIABETIC, TOLD ME ABOUT IT, AND IT WORKS FOR US. I GET THE 600MG TABS FROM GNC AND TAKE 1 OR 2 A NIGHT. I ADD IT TO MY MED LIST FOR THE DOCTORS.
