BIOTIN and your THYROID TEST results!!!!
Monday, December 12, 2016
If you are taking a hair loss supplement, multivitamin or Biotin at high doses, this is for you!
Turns out supplemental Biotin interferes with thyroid and in some cases TSH numbers, as biotin is frequently found in the bioassays of these tests.
Does this mean you should throw your Biotin, Hair Help Supplement or Multi in the trash?
Just stop taking it for several days before your thyroid/TSH tests, and you should be okay.
Biotin is a B vitamin and like all B vitamins, is water soluble so tends to wash out of the body in short time.
Here's an article, if you want more:
Frankly I was happy to read this... it explains some of the crazy numbers I've seen on this forum!
Thanks to Tapbelle for bringing this info to my attention.
