    Hi,

    the first time I got to know DCA was when I was looking for a possible treatment for my father, who suffered from cancer. Today, I went back looking for DCA, because DCA originally has been used to treat people with metabolic disorders.

    This is the link, and I think many of you already know:

    http://www.dca.med.ualberta.ca/Home/Updates/2007-03-15_Update.cfm

    It also says it has been used for decades to treat children with inborn errors of metabolism, due to mitochondrial disease. It has also been used to successfully treat mantle-cell lymphoma, it seems.

    Is it too simple to say this may be a treatment for us too ?

    OS.

    I wanted to resurrect this thread bc I just bought some of this online and wanted to try it. It's powder.I can't see Rich's initial post. Does anyone know much about DCA? I am taking it because tests have shown that I have D Lactic acidosis.
