Hi doc
Do you know what could cause an excess amount of L-carnitine in the body? So far I have only been able to find out what causes deficiencies. What symptoms are likely to be associated with too much of it?

Mia, I have never heard of anyone suffering from l-carnitine toxicity and couldn’t find anything in my books about it either. I will look around and let you know if i find anything. You can also drop DietDoc a line and see what she has to say as this is more her field of expertise. Good luck.
