Hashimoto's disease, scheduled for non-fasting blood test. Had taken gin, tonics and wine yesterday night. Will that affect the blood test?

Hi, I have just been diagnosed with hashimoto disease, I am taking levothyroxine 100mg and should be going for a non fasting blood test today to check my thyroid function and also blood sugar . I had dinner with friends last night and ended up drinking a few gin and tonics and a glass of wine. Will that skew today s blood test? There is an option that I could go for a test tomorrow instead but I would rather get it done today if possible. Thanks, v

Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das

Yes, the activities you described may affect the report due to excessive stress.

So, report can so falsely high level of T3, T4, TSH.

It should be done in empty stomach.
