I can't find the source I mentioned, but this explains the suspected correlation between uric acid levels and low carnitine levels.

Quote
In spontaneously hypertensive rats, L-carnitine decreases serum UA levels and the age-dependent rise in serum UA [31],[32]. Kidneys absorb 95% of carnitine from the glomerular filtrate via an active Na+-dependent transport mechanism [33]. Impairment of this reabsorptive function can lead to carnitine deficiency, in which hyperuricemia may be present because carnitine competes for renal tubular excretion

Interestingly, at least two patents have been applied for for potential treatments for gout, based on L-carnitine.

L-carnitine has many benefits. It is a good antioxidant that helps blood last longer and also helps protect the body from the damage that free radicals do. It also helps to fix nitric oxide in the body, which is very important for the heart and circulatory system. Nitric oxide is needed to keep blood vessels flexible, so blood can move through them more easily, which also reduces how hard the heart has to work to pump blood.

She can use a child's dose of L-carnitine. Hopefully, as she grows older, speech therapy will be of more value for her. Make sure you talk to her a lot and show her the names of things.

It's very difficult for me to recommend brands of supplements for those outside the US, as I do not know what is available in your areas. It is better to provide links for the products to ask my opinion about them.

There are many brands that are equal. If you can show me a link to a product, I can advise if it's suitable.
