Lipoic Acid Use and Functional Outcomes after Thrombolysis in Patients with Acute Ischemic Stroke and Diabetes

This is an interesting article on the benefits of alpha lipoic acid in treating ischemic stroke. It would be valuable to know if there are benefits to supplementing with lipoic acid to prevent stroke or minimize the effects.

Alpha-lipoic acid (aLA) is a strong antioxidant commonly used for treating diabetic polyneuropathy. Previously, we demonstrated the neurorestorative effects of aLA after cerebral ischemia in rats. However, its effects on patients with stroke remain unknown. We investigated whether patients treated with aLA have better functional outcomes after acute ischemic stroke (AIS) and reperfusion therapy than patients not receiving aLA.

The use of aLA in patients with AIS and diabetes who are treated with tPA is associated with favorable outcomes. These results indicate that aLA could be a useful intervention for the treatment of AIS after reperfusion therapy.

    Thanks for the posting. My spouse and i have constantly noticed that most people are desirous to lose weight since they wish to show up slim along with attractive. Even so, they do not continually realize that there are more benefits just for losing weight also. Doctors say that over weight people have problems with a variety of disorders that can be perfectely attributed to their particular excess weight. The great news is that people that are overweight as well as suffering from different diseases are able to reduce the severity of their particular illnesses by simply losing weight. It is possible to see a gradual but notable improvement in health whenever even a moderate amount of weight loss is accomplished.
