    Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dichloroacetic_acid says that it's already used for wart removal and skin peels, and a quick google indicates it's readily available inexpensively (though perhaps not in adequate purity).

    However, it also says that nerve and liver damage have occurred in some patient trials. It's not been effective really in any trial that's been done in various conditions.

    Very much not something to try at home.

    DCA is used as a treatment in some mito disorders. I figured it was only a matter of time before someone tried it for ME/CFS given the PDH abnormalities.

    Risks include nerve damage (although the dose of thiamine used in this study is too low IMO):
