This test is used to measure the amount of carnitine in your blood, assessing how much usable carnitine you have.  Carnitine is a compound that exists in almost every part of your body and helps your body digest fatty acids. Without it, you body cannot turn fats into energy and uses the sugar in your blood for energy instead causing low blood sugar, weakness, fatigue and anemia.
