Notes for this study:
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.
