Possible Interaction: Carnitine and Thyroxine



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

In particular, l‐carnitine inhibits both triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) entry into the cell nuclei.

The combined adminstrration of carnitine and thyroxine resulted in no increase in the total carnitine content but in a significant (p<0.01) increase of the short chain acylcarnitine content.
The present results demonstrate that carnitine potentiates the effects of thyroxine on DPPC content and support the concept of an interrelationship between carnitine and thyroxine metabolism.
