This what the article actually says about ALA:

"However, they have shown a moderate benefit in terms of pain reduction[132]. In a randomized double-blinded trial, ALA-treated patients reported a greater reduction in neuropathic pain when compared to placebo-treated subjects[122]."

anyone has any experience with gluten sensitivity and PN? I did a celiac profile test recently and found was high in gluten antibodies (deameditated gliadin), suggeting some kind of gluten intolerance..

I will go on a gluten free diet to see if it helps my PN symptoms

Abnormally high levels of antibodies specific for gliadin can indicate coeliac disease, which is an autoimmune disease of the gut.

This can be associated with PN.

See, for example Serology of celiac disease in gluten sensitive ataxia or neuropathy; Role of deamidated gliadin Antibody .

It took me a while to figure out that what you call coleliac disease in the British commonwealth is called Celiac disease here in North America
