In brief: yes

I think Alpha lipoic acid is an excellent supplement if you are taking a high quality product.
Some products have a lot of added ingredients and fillers which make them undigestable and possibly toxic. Ala helps with Insulin metabolism, and liver detoxification. Its a good antioxidant as well, which helps your overall health. The dosage varies depending on your condition.
