Thanks! 2 more quick (?) questions: 1) is acetyl-dl-leucine identical to L leucine or to supplement called leucine?
2) In experiments with ataxia patients @ 5 grams per day, how were doses administered?--e.g., one 5-gram dose in a.m. or p.m., 2 divided doses/day or...?

You are welcome!

1) They are different...very similar, but with a small difference in their structure.

2) 5 grams per day for ataxia is in divided doses: 1500 mg with breakfast, 1500 mg with lunch and 2000 mg with dinner.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
