How Acetyl L Carnitine Helps Treat Neuropathy

Author: Next Step Foot & Ankle Clinic

Hi this is Dr. Silvester and I’m going to talk to you a little bit today about one of the supplements we use for our patients with diabetic neuropathy that seems to have a big effect in helping them and their nerves get better. There was actually a study done with this supplement where they took 1,275 patients who took this supplement, and they actually showed an increase in nerve fiber density, after taking this supplement for 52 weeks.

They also showed that they had significant decrease in their pain, and they had significantly improved quality of life after taking this supplement. It’s acetyl l carnitine. Acetyl l carnitine works in the same way as many other antioxidants and many other nerve healing supplements. They help the nerve make more energy so it can heal itself and regrow. If you want to start your nerves on the path of healing, not just treating them with prescription medication, which really all they do is help the nerve feel better while it’s dying, you can actually heal them with acetyl l carnitine and good studies have backed that up. With all supplements you want to check with your doctor to make sure it’s okay to start taking them but acetyl l carnitine can have a big benefit for patients with neuropathy.
