I started taking Alpha lipoic acid (1600mgs per day) and acetyl l-carnitine (5000mg per day) for some reasons not related to thyroid. I will be taking it for 3 months. I am already taking 1 grain of NDT per day. I heard that both ALA and carnitine can lower thyroid hormone and after a couple of days I already feel that affect.
Do you think that adding 1 extra grain of NDT would nullify that negative affect? Had anybody any experience with ALA or carnitine, how much extra NDT did you need to take?
