Hi Guys, I have been having horrific, stabbing neuropathy pain. (I am literally yelping and screaming throughout the day, but believe me, I am NOT usually very vocal when I have pain. It's just not me.) ..So, I was advised to take Alpha Lipoic Acid, and I got time released pills at 300 mgs per day... I saw that some people said that it brought their high blood sugars down dramatically. As for me, I have hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) problems everyday. I also have POTS (low blood pressure / orthostatic intolerance) and I saw that ALA can bring down blood pressure too. ....If I am already low on blood sugar and blood pressure, is this safe for me to take??? I know that nobody here is a medical doctor, and all that. I am just looking for your thoughts and feelings on this. ANyone else have experience with this? Thanks everyone!!!!
