Do you take biotin supplements? They could affect your medical tests
from HealthDay News via U.S. News & World Report
Biotin supplements, often taken to improve hair, skin and nails, can interfere with the results of some critical lab tests, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned Tuesday. The FDA is particularly concerned about biotin interference causing a falsely low result for troponin, which is key in diagnosing heart attack. The agency said in a statement that it continues to receive reports of cases where biotin interference caused falsely low troponin results.
