I started round 174 for my son on Monday and this time we increased his dose. We really need to work towards that 1/2 mg per pound.  We moved from 30mg to 40mg this time.

I have always been more conservative about dose raises over the years for several reasons.

  • You don’t need to reach the high-end of the range to complete chelation.
  • Pushing too fast to get to those doses creates side effects including adrenal crashes.

When my son is on rounds we don’t even notice because he functions great on rounds.

I’m glad to report that didn’t have any issues on 40mg of ALA. No symptoms to report. He did not have any post round symptoms either.
