During the past few years some people with CMT have started taking CoQ10, a dietary supplement. Some have found they feel more energetic, some have seen an improvement in breathing problems, while some have seen an improvement in the symptoms of asthma and don't need to use their inhalers as much. Some have reported they have healthier gums.
The amount taken by most is up to and including 120 mgs a day. It usually takes a month or so before any change is noticed. Research is being done on CoQ10 but right now we are flying by the seat of our pants with this one but because mainly positive results have been reported by quite a few people, it is only fair to mention it to you.
CoQ10 can be purchased in your local health food store.
