Reversal of course

For a couple of years, I’d taken alpha-lipoic acid as a supplement, mostly motivated by “Well, how can it hurt?” The American medical establishment sneers at it because “Ew, supplement!” However, apparently it’s approved in Germany for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy. When I ran out in late September and my reorder went undelivered — Amazon says it came back to them — I figured I’d see if it made any difference if I did without.

Inasmuch as I’ve been in serious decline for the last month and a half, I decided to start taking the stuff again. Maybe it will work again, if it worked the first time.

    I’m giving it a try myself, on this (sort of) recommendation. I’ve tried a couple of other things that didn’t help.

    I’m just wondering if it’s interacting with something new in my daily Pill-O-Rama, to the detriment of my sleep.
