Should I stop taking the supplements before Blood Tests?

    I'm getting more blood tests done in June. Doc said to stop taking my ani-inflammatory med several days before the test so they get an accurate result.

    What do you think about the supplements? I take a huge amount of supplements. Should I stop taking those too? I don't want them to mask a problem either.

    Any thoughts?

    I would say yes if it includes your thyroid. I know very well about this. When I had my nuclear med tests done, I had to stop my synthroid and they asked me several times, are you SURE you haven't taken any kind of vitamins?

    Of course as someone said, I would ask my Dr. to be sure. I don't know about the other being tested.

    Hope this helps,

    Take Care!
