Question: Yesterday I took a blood test for overall health and came back with thyroid and kidney abnormalities. I take no medications, am 67 yrs old, and to boost my metabolism, started 2months ago taking a supplement called Body Fit with green tea and raspberry ketones. Would this interfere with a fasting blood test? Everything else came out ok?

Brief Answer:
Yes, it can interfere with the fasting blood test.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for asking.
I have gone through your question.

When you do a fasting blood test, anything that you take in, including vitamins or other supplements, may alter your blood chemistry to a degree that affects its analysis. For this reason it is important to start taking the supplements only after the blood was withdrawn.

Body Fit supplement inhibits fat storage and promotes calorie burning. As a result, you’ll experience decreased fat absorption and a faster metabolism.

I can't say if this is the culpit of your abnormal blood test results, anyway i'd suggest to repeat the tests without taking this supplements and if the abnormal results still persist, then you should discuss this with your doctor.

However, if your thyroid test results are not within the normal range, even the second time, we can discuss about the potential causes, i am an endocrinologist. I can certainly help you if you need any further assistance from my side (Let me know your results first).

Hi, I have been experiencing swelling on my left shoulder (in the neck region) and there s what appears to be a swollen gland in my left neck. The headache is mostly on the right side of my head and breathing is sometimes correlated with irregular heartbeats. I am on HBP medications, but the docs have done tests (ultra sound, EGC, xrays, biopsy) for thyroid, but all are negative. What could these symptoms be and what are the possible treatments?

My husband is 3 months post op Thyroid Cancer. Thyroid was removed as well as 6 metastatic nodes. 148 mc Radioactive Iodine was given & I131 scan showed only residual tissue. He currently takes his synthroid 150 mg. But it has been ineffective. 6 weeks ago he had an onset of pain in tailbone. Which has progressed to severe pain & inability to stand or walk correctly. Along with this his RBC Hemocrit & Hemoglobin levels are low, but his Platelet function times are elevated. He has had several CBC W/DIFF labs. His PFT has been up to 206- 247 ranges & his PFT EPI up to 179. They are consistently high with the exception of 2 different times being normal out of 6 draws. His ENT just removed tonsils with bleeding complications. He believes something is wrong & is sending him to Hematology at Vanderbilt. My question is could the bone pain be related to his levels? Lukemia? Or is that not usual or is it two separate issues such as a blood disorder and possibly a discount issue?
