Alpha Lipoic Acid

I am taking alpha-lipoic acid and having dulled tastebuds. I am a diabetic who takes 900 mg. daily. Could these be related?

That is not a side effect of lipoic acid. It could be a form of peripheral neuropathy. Diabetics tend to have peripheral neuropathies more often than others.
