Dear Sheila,

You mentioned that you've been diagnosed with neuropathy (a condition caused
by nerve damage at various sites of the body that can weaken muscles and
cause a tingling sensation as well as a great deal of pain). You may already
be aware of this, but if not (or for anyone else suffering from K-related or
diabetic nerve damage), Alpha Lipoic Acid might help. It is widely available
as a nonprescription nutritional supplement in the U.S. For over 30 years,
it has been used in Germany to treat both peripheral neuropathy and diabetic
retinopathy (which causes blindness). The book "The Antioxidant Miracle"
(from which I'm quoting info here) says that in studies on the effect of
lipoic acid, patients report a marked relief from symptoms within 2-3 weeks
of taking 200-600 mg. daily. Another study shows that in addition to
significant reduction in pain and numbness associated with neuropathy, lipoic
acid has been shown to stimulate regeneration of nerve fibers in diabetics.

Lipoic acid has also been shown to lead to an improvement in glucose
utilization both as a result of its effects on glucose metabolism and an
ability to increase insulin sensitivity. It also protects the liver from
toxins and is used to treat or prevent radiation injury. Alpha Lipoic Acid
should not be used by people with a B-12 deficiency -- it can make it worse.

You might want to talk to your doctor about this or find a knowledgeable
doctor to advise if this might be helpful for you.
