Ferrara BS: Peripheral Neuropathy (11) RE: BS: Peripheral Neuropathy 17 Nov 08

I've had a lot of success using nutritional supplements for various problems since my heart transplant. Many transplant patients develop diabetes (I have it) and I was having tingling in my feet.

The doctor (at my HMO and my transplant nurse both recommended linoleic acid for neuropathy. Recently I read that lipoic acid also helps. You can get Linoleic Acid in many forms including Evening Primrose Oil and I believe Flaxseed Oil. Lipoic acid is available as Alpha Lipoic Acid among other forms. Each manufacturer claims to have the "best, most absorbable, most effective" form but I just use the cheapest form I can find from a reputable maker.

My own rule about supplements is to start with a very modest dose unless my doctor recommends a specific dose.

Best of luck,
Rita F
