International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    I was reading about L-Carnitine again last night and found this article from a newsletter in 2000.

    Has anyone ever tried Carnitor - injectable or oral - and had any success over the supplement version?

    Has anyone ever tested Carnitine? The lab referenced doesn't seem to be around anymore and the Labcorp test seems to be from serum and not plasma. Would serum measurements work for this purpose or do they have to be plasma?

    Is the acylcarnitines panel necessary as well?

    Thanks! Ema

    Some of the most popular carnitine supplement brands use Sigma-Tau's carnitine. I think there's at least two reputable sources that supplement makers can use and Sigma-Tau is one of them. It would say on the package somewhere if so. I can't remember the other one, it might have been BASF or from Japan.
