    I see people especially on other forums taking all kinds of supplements in hopes of “curing” their thyroid issues. Be careful! I just saw several studies indicating biotin supplements affect the results of thyroid hormone tests. Apparently it interferes with the actual test itself, making the results inaccurate.

    Yes, this is starting to get a lot of attention at physician conferences. The good news is that stopping the Biotin for a few days prior to testing allows it to clear your system.

    Just one more reason to make sure that your endo and primary care doctors know about ALL of the supplements that you are taking!
