Levocarnitine is employed for the prevention and treatment of carnitine deficiency, particularly in patients with kidney disease undergoing dialysis. This medication is administered to individuals who are unable to effectively utilize carnitine obtained from their dietary intake. Insufficient carnitine levels can potentially result in complications related to the liver, heart, and muscles. As part of your medical treatment, your physician may prescribe levocarnitine to address the deficiency of carnitine.
