What causes numbness and tingling sensation in the feet?

I have been diagnosed with polycystic liver disease. Recently I have been experiencing neuropathy symptoms (numbness/tingling to feet and hands as well as pain to these areas). My chiropractor suggested that maybe alpha lapoic acid could help with reducing these symptoms. Now is this supplement safe to use given my diagnosis regarding my liver.
