I was diagnosed with UC on 14th Aug, and had my colonoscopy on the 7th Aug which showed severe pancolitis. I had been struggling with bad symptoms since early July.
A few days before the colonoscopy, I bought some r-lipoic acid (300mg) which I have taken 3x per day. Everything else had been ruled out which led to my IBD diagnosis, no infection, Calprotein reading of 2500 etc confirmed twice, once by GP and once by hospital.
Since I have been taking these, or since about the 10th/11th, I have been seemingly in remission, with the odd twang of pain occasionally.
What I'm basically getting at is, I cannot find anything online about r-lipoic acid being used specifically for IBD except for one ALA infusion study. Has anyone had any sort of positive effect with this supplement?
Many thanks in advance.
