Live talk, session 6 – May 19, 2022: Biotin’s effect on lab tests

Dr. Lewis Blevins talks with guest Dr. Saleh Aldasouqi, Professor, Chief, Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, and Clinician at Michigan State University Specialty Center, Endocrinology Clinic, about Biotin use and its interference with laboratory tests. This is definitely something you need to know to plan discontinuance of the supplement to allow for lab testing. You won’t want to miss this discussion. To learn more about this issue, take a look at this article from on how Bioting can affect some blood test results.

And here is some more information from another article on what Biotin is and how it can cause results to be falsely increased or falsely decreased, causing healthcare practitioners to misdiagnose and mistreat their patients. In addition, the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) – a global scientific and medical professional organization dedicated to clinical laboratory science and its application to healthcare – has issued a Guidance Document on Biotin Interference in Laboratory Tests highlighting the pharmacokinetics and the mechanisms of Biotin interference.

This article from Helio features an interview with Dr. Aldasouqi, where he further details the issues with Biotin use and how it can lead to misdiagnosis.
