Will biotin affect my results?
Biotin does not impact hormone levels in the body, but may interfere with the measurement of hormone levels in the laboratory. This means that with traditional venipuncture or blood draws measuring hormone levels, results may appear abnormal when they are actually normal in the body. The laboratories that perform hormone testing for Everlywell use similar assays as the labs used by healthcare providers; however, our partner laboratories have not yet conducted studies to determine the impact of biotin on the type of testing they perform. Therefore we are unable to say with certainty what impact biotin may have on the hormone levels measured by your Everlywell test. We recommend that you speak with your healthcare provider before making any changes to your medications or supplements.
