Since diagnosed with GD, I have only taken Acetyl L-Carnitine, not L-Carnitine. Recently, the information about LC's strong effect on improving muscle fatigue, pain, and weakening (there are other benefits of taking LC) brought to my attention since although I have been in euthyroid for quite a while, muscle problem is one of the few symptoms still lingering. Before plunging into taking LC, I would like to ask for opinions/comments/experience-sharing from this group's users.
Based on the purpose of taking LC for improving hyperthyroidism/GD condition (and muscle symptoms), (1) which form of LC (tablet, capsule, liquid) is the most suitable and effective? (2) when is/are the best time to take LC: with the meal, between meals, empty stomach, morning, evening b4 bed? (3) any significant side effects, especially: increase bowel movement (caused by the magnesium stearate or LC itself?) (4) your experience of effectiveness (improve thyroid condition and muscle symptom). It's very likely any answer of the four could be related to/depended on one, two, or all other three.
Appreciate and thanks in advance.
