Deficiency?: I normally only start patients on carnitine if they have a deficiency noted by lab test.

Probably: It's a normal component of many foods, especially meat, and it may help with non-alcoholic steatohepatitis and some other health problems. It's no cure-all and you should work with your physician on this.
