Carnitor Injection Description

The key function of L-Carnitine (Levocarnitine) is to convert fats from your diet into fuel for energy. However, those going through end stage renal disease and undergoing dialysis are unable to keep healthy levels of this nutrient and will require a Carnitor Injection administered intravenously by your doctor or nurse while in hospital because either your kidneys are unable to help produce enough of this protein or cannot transport it into your tissues so it can be used as energy. Carnitor Injection will not cure renal disease, but it can help to make you feel less lethargic or weak.

What Does a Carnitor Injection Do?

Once your Carnitor Injection has been administered, the active ingredient will move fatty acids into the organelles found in the material of eukaryotic cells and undergo a catalytic process that results in a series of intricate biological reactions that are critical for providing energy for every cell in your body. This is important for many body processes, including heart and brain function, and muscle movements.

Conditions Treated by Carnitor Injection

End stage renal disease (ESRD), is usually a result of hypertension and diabetes that has not been well controlled. Diabetics have a problem with their body being able to break down sugar (glucose) so your blood sugar levels remain high and will damage the nephrons in your kidneys. Nephrons are the filtering units of your kidneys that filter your blood to regulate water and sodium concentrations and keep what they need while your body expels the rest as urine. Levocarnitine also shows antioxidant activity which could be useful for individuals with heart disease, angina, or other conditions that involve oxidative stress.

Before a Carnitor Injection is Administered

Inform your doctor before a Carnitor Injection whether you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding as it may be harmful to your unborn or nursing baby. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies with your doctor and list any current OTC or Rx medications you use or take, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements. This will help your doctor decide if Carnitor Injection treatment is safe for you.

Carnitor Injection Proper Use

Do not start any new medications or stop current ones while receiving Carnitor Injection treatment without consulting with your doctor as this could increase your risk of side effects. Your medical team may require regular blood tests to monitor your blood chemistry and blood Carnitine levels to be certain the dosage you are receiving does not need adjusting.
