L-Carnitine
Levocarnitine-Oral


Also known as L-carnitine, this is a naturally occurring amino acid derivative required by the body in energy metabolism and for proper use of fats. L-Carnitine is used as a dietary supplement to treat carnitine deficiency. It may also be used in persons with abnormal plasma lipoprotein patterns. If you have serious kidney disease (such as ESRD/dialysis), the intravenous (IV) form of carnitine should be used. The reason is that large doses of carnitine taken by mouth for long periods of time may result in serious side effects (e.g., seizures), interfere with dialysis (increased nitrogen wastes), and cause "fishy odor to occur.

Additional Thoughts
I am writing this on behalf of my daughter who has learning disabilities. L Carnitine is the'best thing since sliced bread' for keeping her metabolism stable. She was the first in the UK to have this treatement, and this treatment may be one of the reasons why she is still alive to comment on it 20 years on!!!!
