Usefulness Of L-carnitine, A Naturally Occurring Peripheral Antagonist Of Thyroid Hormone Action, In Iatrogenic Hyperthyroidism: A Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Clinical Trial
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
In a trial on hyperthyroidics with fixed medication dosages, L-Carnitine was investigated for its clinical usage as a thyroid hormone receptor antagonist.
There was some suppression of declining symptoms in groups when they were ingesting L-Carnitine, suggesting it may be useful for treating some (but not all) symptoms of hyperthyroidism.
2g and 4g daily were equally effective.
