Ok, in another new study on L-carnitine, researchers investigated the level and the effects of its supplementation in children with moderate persistent asthma (MPA) in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial over 6 consecutive months.
The children received either L-carnitine or placebo and received pulmonary function tests (PFT) and childhood-asthma control test (C-ACT) before and 6 months after carnitine supplementation.
Results revealed that initial L-carnitine levels were significantly lower in the patient group as compared to the control group. PFT and C-ACT showed significant improvements in asthmatic children supplemented with L-carnitine, as compared to placebo. These findings suggest L-carnitine supplementation may lead to an improvement of C-ACT and PFT in children with MPA.
