Serum carnitine is decreased in hemodialysis patients, which induces muscle atrophy. Thus, we examined the different effects of l‐carnitine and exercise on exercise activity and muscle status in hemodialysis patients. Twenty patients were divided into l‐carnitine and cycle ergometer groups and were followed for 3 months. Muscle and fat mass, physical activities, and muscle status were evaluated by an impedance, physical function test, and magnetic resonance imaging, respectively. The l‐carnitine significantly increased muscle mass (P …
