Question: Diabeties can take lipoic acid vegitarian capsules how can i get it
A: Though Lipoic Acid may help metabolize glucose it is recommended consulting with a physician before starting.
Lipoic acid has been shown to have a number of beneficial effects, both in the prevention and treatment of diabetes. LA may act in a number of ways that are especially protective in diabetes: 1) it prevents beta cell destruction, a cause of T1DM; 2) it enhances glucose uptake in T2DM; and 3) its antioxidant effects may be particularly useful in slowing the development of diabetic neuropathy and may especially be significant in alleviating diabetes-induced reduction in intracellular vitamin C levels.
Furthermore, very few of the reported effects of LA will manifest as objective improvement over the course of weeks or months. This is demonstrated in trials for the treatment of neuropathy, which lasted up to 12 weeks, in which objective improvement was not observed but clear subjective improvement was present, even in double-blind studies. It is unrealistic to expect dramatic effects in weeks, since diabetic complications develop over years and decades. However, given the array of beneficial effects of LA and the lack of adverse side effects, its usage in Germany, and potential for improvements in neuropathy deficits as well as symptoms.
