When I first posted to this Board, I shared my story about the vast improvement in recovery from my Graves disease when I added first regular L-Carnitine and then Acetyl-L-Carnitine (which I obtained from a Health Food Store as well as by prescription) to my treatment regimen.as well as Vitamin D. Before I added this, I got blood levels checked and I was deficient in both Carnitine and Vitamin D. I believe all Graves patients are deficient in these two indices. My disease was caught early and I was put on 10 mg of Methimazole (similar to Carbimazole in England). This immediately normalized my T4 and T3 but did not budge my TSH which remained at less than 0.01 for 2 years until I then added the Carntine. The acetyl-L-carnitine raised my TSH the most, well into the normal range. It also got rid of my eye irritation and I was told I no longer have Graves antibodies. I was also able to decrease my Methimazole, now down to 2.5 mg. I would really like to follow up with those of you who have tried this and had success with it. I'd also like to hear from people who feel it didn't help them.
