Biotin supplements could affect blood tests for heart failure and thyroid disease, found a six-person University of Minnesota study.  After subjects took 10 mg daily for a week, then had blood drawn, many of the blood tests came back falsely low or high.  If you’re having blood tests and take biotin, tell your doctor.
