L-carnitine levels have clinical significance in non-APOE4 carriers with mild AD

As reported in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, the CSF L-carnitine levels are decreased in patients with early Alzheimer’s disease (AD) who are non-APOE4 carriers. Further, the L-carnitine levels are correlated with Aβ42 and the MMSE score. It is suggested that L-carnitine supplementation may be beneficial in non-APOE4 carriers with mild AD.
