Notes for this study:
80 participants with non-alcoholic fatty liver who were in a randomized, controlled trial for those with gastroenterological were selected and received 250 mg of L-carnitine every 12 hours for 24 weeks or were in the control group. Both groups were recommended to exercise and consume a low fat diet.


There was a comparable reduction in AST and a greater reduction in ALT for the carnitine group. Liver fat didn't improve more in the carnitine group, and the groups were considerably different at baseline.
