Reducing Neuropathy Discomfort with Alpha Lipoic Acid
Hi, this is Dr. Silvester and I'm going to talk to you about another one of the supplements that we use in our patients who have diabetic neuropathy and that's called alpha lipoic acid. Alpha lipoic acid has been used for 20 years, treating a lot of different conditions HIV, sciatica, cancer, liver problems, hepatitis, strokes, vascular disease, diabetes, cataracts, glaucoma, and multiple sclerosis. Also, it's been used in patients who have Alzheimer's, to try to help them somewhat. It's not completely effective in any of those things it's a supplement and used as an adjunctive treatment for all of those things. It also plays an.
Important role in nerve metabolism, because what alpha lipoic acid does, is it works in a thing called the Krebs Cycle in your cell. What the Krebs Cycle is is it's the cycle that generates most of the energy that a cell needs. If you think of it like a gas tank in a car, alpha lipoid acid supports putting fuel in that gas tank. The energy requirements in cells varies a lot on the type of the cell. Your skin cells don't require very much energy, muscle cells require some, tendons.
Require very little because they just sit there, but nerve cells are always using energy. They're the most nerve sensitive cell in your body. By taking alpha lipoid acid and supporting that fuel tank, you can actually increase your nerve's ability to function normally and to heal. The other thing that alpha lipoid acid does is after you take enough that your Krebs Cycle is full, it then becomes an antioxidant. If you do some research on oxidative stress, we think that plays a significant role in a lot of different disease processes.
Including neuropathy. Alpha lipoic acid is a supplement that we use quite frequently in our patients with diabetic neuropathy, and what we tell them is that they've got to be a little bit careful, because alpha lipoic acid can lower your blood sugar. It's a benefit if you have a little trouble with your blood sugar, it's probably not a benefit if you're under good control. Also, it can cause a little problem with your thyroid. Levothyroxine can go down and also you probably shouldn't take it if you're having chemotherapy.
Treating Neuropathy and Nerve Pain in the Feet
Let me start with I'm a diabetic. I developed neuropathy, which basically you lose all sensation in the feet, but it's over a period of time. It was very painful. I would have sensations in my feet like I was standing on fire, walking on glass. Last October it got so bad that I couldn't sleep at night. Then I met Dr. Bullard, because he's just a great physician. I wouldn't think twice, I'd recommend him to anybody. Very compassionate, very thorough, I can't say enough about Dr. Bullard. He's just a great physician and I don't know.
If there's anything he couldn't do he could probably move mountains if he wanted to! Glen, probably one of the biggest questions people are asking you is what'd we do, what's happened. Of course, you had a tremendous improvement in your pain and the tingling and the numbness. Easiest explanation is, to tell everybody, that this big nerve here, which is on the inside part of your left foot, was getting strangled. There was a noose around it. What we did is we went in and loosened the noose, and that allows that nerve to begin to function and work like it's supposed.
To. Now, the sensation is coming back, it's something that's going to take time but I can feel more. My quality of life has greatly improved since I had the procedure done by Dr. Bullard. There's no other physician that I would recommend. Glen, in the next couple weeks, what we're going to do is make sure that the swelling is improving, hopefully begin to transition you out of your compression socks, because I know it's kind of hot right now, and then look at making sure that your shoe gear and things like that are where they're supposed.
